Historically we have used Bugzilla so we can keep track of them (the
enhancement tag is also available there for that reason).
You could use the wiki, but I personally think the wiki better serves as
primarily a documentation site, both for current code and for the direction
we plan on taking Bioperl. We could add a code requests page, though. We
already have a Projects Priority page that details what we think are the top
issues with Bioperl that need to be addressed; there have been a number of
things added to that page that should be separated out into a code request
However, I don't know how much will be implemented unless someone interested
takes it up. Frankly, there are quite a number of requests in bugzilla that
haven't been added b/c of lack of interest/time by the other developers.
Either that, or we have a lack of knowledge about a certain format or
program, as I had with the XMFA and ARP AlignIO parsers (see the POD for my
comments; the parsing is pretty minimal).
