I have noticed things that I consider "missing features". For example there is no setActiveIndex function on the Ext.Carousel which I think is an omission since you have setActiveItem, getActiveItem and getActiveIndex and it mean that a function for "navigating to page 5" using a number field is more hassle than it needs to be.
However the template in the "Bugs" forum seems very geared towards bugs and not feature requests because it requires lots of information which do not matter when asking for a new function.
Is there an accepted way to make these requests?

+1 for some kind of votebox for bugs/feature requests like what can be done with getsatisfaction.com

Right now there is no formal way to submit feature requests.
If there is something you would like to see however, feel free to post in this forum and the team will discuss.
As for your setActiveItem idea; you can pass an integer to setActiveIem and it will do the same thing.
