I could be wrong here, but my experience in this regard has left me with
the desire that there should be  "some place" to canonicalise plans and
ideas somehow.

Mostly because "dig through the mailinglist" seems a bit challenging for
any newcomer who is willing to attempt implementing the ideas.

The challenge there of course, is for us to agree that such a place is
needed, or for such a place to come into existence somehow and for people
to realise its utility and opt  in to participating with it to make it work.

After all, we're all volunteers*, and people tend not to react very happily
if you tell them what they should be doing :)

But such things seem common-place in other OpenSource systems and they seem
to be effective for them, even though, they like us, have a volunteer base.

Just we haven't made it happen yet for some reason. ( or if such a thing
already exists, it seems not well known or well used, and if that is the
case, trying to understand why could be useful ).

*There are a few paid exceptions ofc.
