How about if you've got a good idea for a module (extending something existing / improving on something or creating something totally new) that those mailing lists are first port of call to ask for suggestions?
Something that may seem obvious and meaningful to you may be
totally obscure to the rest of the community.
Okay, seems like someone thought that was a bad idea. I short explanation as to why would have been more helpful than an anonymous downvote though :) If we don't know where we're going wrong, how can we learn from our mistakes?
