For starters let me say I'm having quite a lot of trouble understanding 
you, but I'll do my best.

We have several such 'platforms': bugs.xfce.org, wiki.xfce.org, 
forum.xfce.org, and of course this mailing list.

Again: wiki.xfce.org.

An app... like a web browser?

Well, if you're not willing to work with us and make use of the tools we 
already have (tools which above you seem to be advocating!), you 
probably won't get far.

I'm not sure I understand.

Are you talking about a roadmap?  We don't really have one, mainly 
because, out of the people actively working on Xfce, no one is able to 
give a predictable time commitment.  So things tend to get done when 
they get done, and new features and new direction tend to just appear 
organically.  There are feature requests on Bugzilla and the wiki, and 
we try to implement those as we feel is practical and useful.

I think the devs are pretty well aware of what's going on in 
developer-land already.
