I'm really pleased that we're starting to see some divergent use cases starting to emerge as we explore this topic further - the whole big challenge that we've got here is different people using the issue queue (or not using it), issue pages and product pages in different ways and we need to create an environment that better supports a wider range of needs.
Clearly I've got a pretty good handle on the 'the issue queue is totally overwhelming and intimidating, I'm not a coder but I have value to add beyond adding bug notes and feature requests, but I can't find a way to get started or to work productively here' angle totally down I think. What I don't have a good enough appreciation of is some of the other key usage scenarios, and one that I'm hearing a lot of at the moment is the Module Maintainer perspective.
So, putting on my UX Consultant hat (when is it ever off!), I'd like to do a quick research project and conduct some interviews, preferably talking via Skype or phone but via text (IRC/IM/Email) if you prefer with half a dozen module maintainers in the next week.
The interview will take about 30mins, it would be great if we could screenshare so you can show me your set up and talk me through screens as we chat, I'm based in London so timezones can be a bit annoying but I'm flexible.
Can you help me get a list of people who would like to participate (this might be you) or who you think I should definitely talk to?
