The DocumentFoundation has a very nice wiki
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Main_Page> set up for LibreOffice.
All the main pages have this header at the top that makes navigation much
easier.  I particurly like how their Design team's
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design> pages are set up.

each project that the design team is working on gets put on the Whiteboard
<https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Whiteboards> page.  Each
project has the same format based on this Default_Template

   - 1 Summary - short description of the project.
      - 1.1 Status -  Analysis, Call for Proposals, Shaping Tentative
      Design, Blueprint, Implemented
      - 1.2 Scope - clear definition of what is in and out of scope for
      this project.
   - 2 Discussion - Any email archive or IRC chat log regarding this
      - 3 Proposals - This is where each person that has input writes down
      their idea.
            - 4 Relevant Art - Any outside sources that might be
relevant, mostly
      images and webpages explaining how an app works.  For GIMP this could be
      images of Inkscape, Mypaint, Krita, Alchemy, Photoshop,
Illustrator, corel
      painter etc.

The five stages in this process:
Analysis -  just about analying the problem and gathering all needed
Call for Proposals - this is when more people get involved and start making
up their proposals.
Shaping Tentative Design - the design is almost done but it is still up in
the air for debate.
Blueprint - (it has been a while since I last contributed to the
LibreOffice Design Team, and I have not personally seen a project get to
this new stage) I think it means that the design is "finished" and is
waiting for a developer to pick it up and start working on it.
Implemented - the feature has been fully implemented.

This system works very well in the LibreOffice community perhaps it could
hep out the GIMP gui team.

Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Praise be unto God for giving us a way to live
with him.
