As I read Mike Webb's description of how he uses Tomboy it occurs to
me that user stories can be extremely helpful both for creating a
product roadmap, and for helping guide the developers when they
implement a planned features. Knowing how your users use your product
can really help to hone your focus and development.
This is something I learned first hand when conducting usability
studies at Novell. In the year or more that I have been on this list
I have seen that Tomboy has captured a tremendous amount of interest,
and is being used in a many diverse ways. Ways that may not have
occurred to the maintainers. With that in mind, might it be a good
idea to start a "User Stories" wiki, where Tomboy users can share how
they use Tomboy?
This would kind of be a companion to the PlaceForNewIdeas page, and to
make it easy to find, I would recommend giving it a prominent link on
the project's home page.
What do you all think?
