Meta Server Fault has been ignored by the devs as far as design bugs are concerned:
Is there any formal process to report, track bugs originating at site-specific metas and communicate their resolution to Stack Exchange users? 'Cause if there is, it is uneven, not transparent and frankly speaking fails the Joel test (#4 and #5). At one end, we have Mr.Rahjerdi's fantastically prompt response to Android app bugreps. At the other end of the scale - well, a design bugrep sitting without acknowledgement since March this year is rather abysmal.
I would propose inserting links to internal ticket numbers in devs' comments acknowledging bug reports, but this is mostly a non-technical problem. No amount of technology can solve it, am afraid, without changes to SOP (standard operating procedures).
"Additionally, the community managers do monitor feature requests on all meta sites, so they will see such requests and act on them (assuming the community comes to a consensus)."
