I'm a newcommer to this list (see the recent "The "no border text" 
feature in Writer 3.5 is not complete" thread) who was directed to it by 
Cedric while discussing on the French general discussion list (same hint 
was given by Regina on the EN discussion list).

As I understand (correct me if necessary) this list goal -- which I find 
excellent -- is to narrow the topic to actual user experience 
enhancements (hence the "UX"). In short, here people are supposed to 
discuss the pros and cons of current or suggested behaviours in the 

I'm quite surpised -- to say the least -- when reading several of the 
answers that my messages and NoOp's have received in the thread in 
question. My feeling, at this first participation, is that apparently 
it's quite difficult to make ideas flow here when one's not from the 
happy few.

All this seems completely contradictory with the UX list goals.

So here are a few questions of mine that will help me understand the 
nuts and bolts of this list: Where do the discussions lead? Who decides 
to (not) implement a change discussed here? When is a consensus 
considered valid? Who decides that? Is there a global steering that 
overviews the talks and validates the choices?
-> Is there somewhere a "nettiquette" or a general use manual that 
states how *this* list is supposed to work and how discussions 
are/should be held?

As I wish to post a few new messages wrt various UX topics I'm 
considering important, I'd better know how things are held so that the 
threads don't go wild because of respective ignorance.

Thanks for your time.
Best regards,
