Where should people give feedback on Ubuntu?

I am used to Docky, and miss the ability to easily iconize/hide all windows for a given application, or to see a list of the window titles for each window for a given application.

Double clicking the icon in Unity shows all of the current windows as a means to select one of them, but a simple list of window titles when you hover the pointer over the icon would often be preferable when you are thinking of the name of the document you want to show.

Is there a better way to iconize all the windows for a current application than having to click on each of their iconize buttons on their window bars? In Docky, you can show or hide the windows by clicking the application icon on the icon bar.

Rocko, no, clicking on the icon will not minimise the app.

We have a minimise button for that, it's prominent.
