Yes, in fact this discussion is a perfect example. It seems that there
is quite a lot of free-time in the hands of the participants of this
list to discuss into the minutia of each and every topic that arises.
Although I think it would be more productive to stay focused on issues
that affect the project directly.

Certainly, it would be a benefit to have someone involved that has so
much time to discuss the issues.

Absolutely. Just as it is useful for the individuals in the user
community to contribute enhancement suggestions, designs and
implementations. It is just as useful for those same individuals in the
user community to suggests improvements in the manner of interaction
between the developers and the users. Open-source thrives off of
collaboration, which extends beyond simply suggest, design and
implement. Productive interactions between the developers and the user
community will always lead to a higher quality product. Which I believe
is a common goal among all involved.
