I must admit, I wasn't paying attention to the original issue being discussed, so sticking broadly, for most things, if you can put forward a reasoned case for something, we're certainly willing to reconsider it, particularly if it's been a couple of years since it was proposed. There are several other reasons why it can be worth submitting it to Github as well:
- Firstly, we will sometimes say that a proposed feature is not something WE will prioritise, but if someone else is interested in implementing it, we will accept a pull request for it (which is, if someone else writes the code we will review it to include in NVDA).
- Particularly in that case, it may also be something which can be created as an add-on, which then doesn't necessarily require as much review as a pull request to add something to core.
- GitHub is a central repository of feature requests and subsequent actions. If we have an email conversation and from that decide not to implement something, it potentially means having the same conversation in year or so when it gets proposed again. If the rationale for and against is documented on GitHub, it's much easier to come back later and put forward reasoning why things have changed. it might even be as simple as people didn't think it would take off a couple of years ago but things have changed and such a feature would be really useful now.
