Yes, proposals help us know what to implement, when we have time.

The proposal can be short, but it needs to describe the feature in
enough detail, that a developer could implement it:

If there's a good proposal, some volunteer or staff member may decide
to implement it, when they have time.

We can also include proposals in grant applications. (It's much harder
to include an idea in a grant application, we don't have enough details.)

Perhaps it might fit into some of our existing anti-censorship grants.
But that's something for the anti-censorship team to decide.
Again, a proposal makes that decision much easier.

Yes, I agree.

Unfortunately, there are lots of really useful and important things
we can do. And never enough people to do them.

But a proposal is a good step forward.
