Feature requests as a Bug?

I find it odd to add a feature request in “Bugzilla”. Why not a POST in the community? or just an email to the appropriate developer’s inbox?

Nevertheless...

Request:
Add to Memories Feature in iJournal
http://bugs.warped.com/show_bug.cgi?id=8

BTW, I love this program... i am also a Blogger user and think the LiveJournal/iJournal combination suits me better.

the client protocol does not support this
So until there is a change to LJ's servers, probably won't happen.

Because for the developers, bugzilla is a good, centralized place to track things like that, as opposed to a community which is a wretched place to track things (ever try to find a community post from X days ago, much less X weeks/months?) Email isn't a whole lot better. So, most likely, what would happen with a post here or an email is, if you're lucky, the developer will enter it into bugzilla themselves, and if not, it'll get missed/lost.

(This speaking as a developer who's worked both on projects that had a centralized bug/enhancement/etc... tracking system and projects that haven't...)

Because email is not easily tracked, nor is entries in here. By entering it bugzilla, we can assign who gets it, submit patches, verify it and then commit it without it getting dropped on the floor or lost.

It can be a pain until you get used to it, but then it "makes a lot of sense".

Thank you for submitting your request.
