If people have something concrete and workable, then propose it.

Things I've noticed:
 * interactive is needed
   e.g. mailing list turnaround speed is not good enough
 * logging is needed
 * summary of decisions is needed
   meaning: not just a log of a conversation. seems to conflict with
 * people should be able to join irrespective or their timezones
   seems to conflict with interactive need
 * some form of moderation should be possible
   to avoid bike sheds
 * should be very easy for anyone to join
   usually results in bike shedding IMO

A lot of these requests seem to conflict. So suggest before asking for
something to really think what the requirements are for doing design.

I'm thinking of something where:
 * you can come with some need
 * people can post screenshots, visible immediately
 * comments can be given immediately, visible immediately
 * based on comments:
    * new screenshots, more comments, repeat
 * everything is logged
 * system can close discussion
 * system shows newest screenshot at top
 * system allows searching/exporting to wiki or something

But that is from my very limited idea that the design team works on the
design of one app interactively with the maintainer...
