The question of development idea storage is a good one.  I know launchpad
has an "Answers" section which I enabled on zmsocial.
I think that this may work for now with each idea being a question.

This has some nice functionality, like subject checking (you enter a subject
for your question and it checks for related questions)

Also question can then be turned into bug reports and/or assigned to a
developer for more investigation.

Answers have to be enabled before they work, so I enabled on the zmsoial
project and added an example question
