"Today a new feedback site is launched at http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com
that will make it easier for users of Ubuntu to suggests ideas for
improvements. Voting makes it clear which ideas have the most support in
the user community and should be given priority. We have of course been
inspired by the IdeaStorm site from our good friends at Dell but
modified the concept to fit our needs.
The development team can now take the pulse on the most pressing user
issues and propose the ideas as topics at the Ubuntu Development Summits
and ultimately as specifications. Ubuntu development is in turn driven
by detailed specifications written up in the wiki and tracked as
blueprints in Launchpad."
