Not necessarily...IMO the only real closure is writing and releasing
code that does what people meant to do.

You could vote for ages on big decisions, but if no one implements
them it's just a waste of time.

I'd suggest not to worry too much about this for now, this community
is just getting started so it seems normal to me that many ideas are
thrown in the air and only a few actually get acted on immediately.
There's not even any code to act on so far ;-)

Once our JIRA instance is up people can start creating issues in a
"wishlist" category, to make sure things don't fall through the
cracks. For now, committers could create a TODO file in svn, or a
website page, to keep track of such things.

The only thing that's really needed right now IMO is a rough roadmap
for the next 4-8 weeks - that could be discussed in a new thread where
people can suggest the 3-5 goals that they think are the most
important for that initial period. Then you ask for volunteers to
implement those things, and if no one steps up they just don't happen.
