Ubuntu Technical Review Board Looks at Brainstorm Ideas
After UDS-N (Ubuntu Developer Summit for the Natty release), Matt Zimmerman, Canonical CTO, wrote about plans for the Ubuntu Technical Board to begin reviewing brainstorm ideas and responding to those ideas on a quarterly basis.
Zimmerman discusses this process in his, Ubuntu Brainstorm Top 10 for December 2010, post today. His post lists the ideas that were reviewed and gives official responses from various developers. "This is the first batch, and we plan to repeat this process each quarter. We’ll use feedback and experiences from this run to improve it for next time, so let us know what you think." wrote Zimmerman.
About a month ago, I was asked whether or not I knew if ideas were really reviewed by developers. I felt confident answering "yes" to the question as I was able to point them to Zimmerman's plans post. To me this is exciting news, now no one in the process (those who suggest, moderate, or vote on the ideas) has to wonder, "Do these ideas really make it to the developers". As you can see if you look at Zimmerman's post, "yes, they do!"
