I don't think we have any preconceptions about this. So the short
answer is both: both reactive and proactive.
Reactive, we already have a good sense of what that's like, with the
dogfooding discussions that have been going on. Proactive, ideas for
new designs, we're a little fuzzier on. I think we will need to set
up an area on the wiki where people can file ideas, so we don't lose
them. Then when it's time to discuss planning, we can review the
ideas and suggestions people have contributed and discuss them in the
context of goals and tenets for future releases.
The wiki is an area where we know we need more work, but it's not
clear right now what that work is and who's going to do it or when.
We will keep the list updated on that issue because I believe
expanding the wiki to include active community participation will be
a key piece of our collaborative design process.
