So, having discussed with with DanC and Sam on IRC I think this 
statement is a little misleading. As far as I can tell (and I hope that 
someone will correct me if I am wrong), the mailing list (and, I guess, 
the bug database) is still the primary means for feedback. However if 
someone has feedback that they would like tracked in the tracker for 
whatever reason, they can request that an entry for it be added there. 
This request will be granted by someone with tracker write access 
subject to the requirement only that it is a genuine piece of feedback.

This model seems a little different to that used by Mike Smith (in that 
model, the tracker represented issues of concern to the whole group) 
although I guess for issues not in the tracker, it is assumed that the 
feedback will be dealt with by the editor directly so maybe the net 
effect will be similar.
