The page you have to describe your process says that a feature that isn't ready to be triaged is in the state "Gathering Interest". My question is what level of interest do you need to start looking at a request?
Is there a specific number of votes? Set of comments? Is 100 votes enough? 1000?
I ask this because there is a feature that would make my life a lot easier that has nearly 100 votes, but has been left untouched for years. The feature would be relatively quick to implement, and is a missing feature of the markdown spec.
