I think there is now a GitHub or similar repository for E+ feature suggestions, but have lost track of that. (In the past I sent requests to the Help Desk.) Will someone please point me in the right direction? p.s., I use .RVI files a lot to organize Output:Variables. My suggestion is to make that process a "report" within E+.

Feature requests were being posted to the main EnergyPlus development repository on GitHub as "issues" and then tagged with the label "suggestion". However, feature requests are now posted to the Feedback section of the EnergyPlus site, which uses UserVoice.

I have heard that a voting feature might be added to GitHub issues, which may shift feature requests back to that site.

Perfect. Thanks. Suggestion posted.

At one point, we considered using FeatHub but decided against it. IIRC, integration was not great at the time and we also felt that having something GitHub-ish would drive a certain large segment of the user-base away. As you said, as platforms progress, we could revisit and consolidate.
