Official RFE responses

Postby elburz » Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:57 am

I think it would be nice if there was some known about threshold/metric that would get an official response/rationale about a particular RFE. I'm aware there are many RFE's out there, many of which are pretty niche, but there are also a decent number that get a lot of views and comments from community members but never see any sort of official response or even recognition. I think this ends up demoralizing people from providing any further feedback or making more RFEs.

I don't think this system should mean that if X RFE gets Y views then it must be added to TD, but just some kind of response saying "oh ya, we here you, we'll add it to our mid-long term goals" or "no we're not adding that because of ABCD".

Here's some examples where I would expect to at least see an official word or rationale posted about from Derivative that have gone silent:

Build to .exe // no client-side license - 18 comments - 1560 views:

project file format more suitable for source control - 7 comments - 3002 views

Video codec info - 6 comments - 1040 views

version switcher - 9 comments - 1606 views

I'm a big fan of companies using uservoice.com for RFE kinda stuff. it can do everything elburz describes. allows super easy voting, where you can only upvote a limited number of ideas, but move those votes around if you see a better / more important idea or when the idea gets implemented. and responses from developers such as yes, no, can't implement because etc...
