True, new features are not being debated much but they are being
developed surely. This is not only about fixing bugs.
This is possible because people mostly agree that those features are needed.
At least currently developers are not pulling to different directions.

I try to be more constructive. The fact still is that most features
are in developers' personal ToDo--lists and not discussed actively by
However there are many ideas which get often discussed in forum and
mailing list by many people.
So there is no lack of discussion. There is only lack of people
implementing the ideas.

You forgot the most important means of communication which is the code
commit history.
We are like aliens using an alien language, Pascal in this case. It is
the most powerful way to communicate SW, a human language cannot do it
as well.
Good program code explains to people what we want the computer to do.
