No. There is no real way to ask. Most developers do this because they enjoy it. User feedback is valuable. Suggestions are valuable. The real question is what NOT to do. 1. Don't expect every suggestion or recommendation you ask for to be incorporated into the next version or even incorporated at all. The developers may either not find it valuable or there may be other restrictions that prevent your suggestions from being incorporated.
2. Never ask for ETA. The majority of developers here on XDA do other things for a living and this is just either a hobby or for their own use.
3. Don't demand anything or be insulting. Just because your suggestions or ideas don't make it into a rom, don't take it personally. Be nice and professional. Don't be upset if someone like Cloudyfa doesn't respond via PM. Recognized developers like Cloudyfa, NRGZ28, Dorimanx, Dr87, Xdabbeb, Rovo89 and etc have tons of volume of PMs. Some of them even turn off PMs just because of the volume of posts coming through their boxes.
So that's it. Remember the Golden Rule. Enjoy and good luck! :thumbup:
