Sorry, I didn't mean to suggest that any one way was worse (or better) than

rather that there are too many places that people can discuss proposals. If
the OP has put up a proposal, & is on the List & the wiki discussion page
to explain details & counter arguments, so most people "here" are happy (!)
But at the same time, there's other groups talking about the idea on IRC &
XYZ, who aren't getting any feedback from the OP, so they can convince
themselves it's a bad idea so vote against it.

It would just be good if there was only  place that these discussions on
new proposals took place.

Maybe turn what I said before around - all discussion should be the wiki
discussion page, with the only mention on the List being "This new proposal
- all discussion at this page", & similar on all the other forums, IRC etc ?

Yep, like that!

Yeah, I know, so before anyone else says it: https://xkcd.com/927/ :-)
