This ticket is for tracking the need to integrate and select the target features for Blossom. Here's the process.

Early Research / Brainstorm Phase:

a. Brainstorm ideas and track them with the Blossom wishlist label.
b. @nathan-at-least may select some of those to promote to Blossom Goal + Feature Requirements labels status. This change signals that the company is moving beyond the brainstorm/wishlist stage to putting the goal through a "feature selection" process, namely the following steps.
c. Issues that aren't promoted may be transferred to the wishlist for future upgrades, or we may choose to close them to signal that we plan to not aim for that proposal for the foreseeable future.

Feature Selection Process:

d. When brainstorms become explicit goals, the first step is to define "feature requirements" which translates a broad high-level goal into precise technical requirements. (Note: this is not design or implementation, which comes later.) @nathan-at-least will delegate some of this feature requirements work.
e. While feature requirements are being sorted, @nathan-at-least will be coordinating a "product validation" process, which involves getting targetted feedback from the ecosystem, and also doing internal user modeling and market analysis. We want to know who a feature helps, how it helps them, which strategic goal this advances, and what those user's best alternative to a given feature might be. If all those those don't line up sufficiently, we may decide to nix a feature goal.
f. In concert with product validation, we also need a requirements integration process, to ensure all of the feature requirements are coherent together.
g. For the features which have well specified requirements and which pass our validation, we'll then commit to them, which will begin a subsequent specification & implementation phase.

We'll announce our transition into the specification and implementation phase as we approach it.

Hi! Just wanted to make a note that we're aiming for the end of November to have all items from the brainstorming list either rejected or promoted to the Blossom Goal + Feature Requirements labels status by the end of November.
