[feedhenry-dev] Using mailing list as main source of new functionalities

I initially created the trello board as a landing ground and discussion
area for features requests and enhancements.
A way for users to give their feedback and make sure their voice was heard
before an action was taken ('action was taken' meaning something was added
to the Jira backlog)
The mailing list didn't even come into mind as the place for that to happen.

Thanks to Summers for bringing it up with me, I think using trello for this
is probably not the best way forward.
The mailing list makes so much sense, and I really should have thought of

Where I think we're lacking, and some other teams have found it useful, is
having the team roadmap view visible.
All our backlog is ultimately in Jira.
The roadmap is hidden away in our Jira backlog in the form of issues &
Is there a way to better visualise the backlog at the 'roadmap' level?
Is that something people would find useful?
