Hello *,

here it is an idea of mine I've started to discuss with Sophie:

It's still in a very raw and theoretical form and it likely has to be
refined a lot.

The main purpose of such a proposal is to increase efficiency in
managing help requests and contributions, both casual and core ones.

While I was thinking about it a little more, I've already found 3 more
critical points:

1) appreciation of the proposal by and its utility for developers. They
already have bugzilla;

2) manageability of such a system by the maintainers and contributors of
the projects. They have, like everybody else, few free time and the
addition of another "system" and its maintenance may reduce that
available time. A huge automation of the system is absolutely needed;

3) native languages projects/tasks may create barriers in a management
system of this kind without the key effort of few local coordinators,
usually the same maintainers and core contributors of the NL projects
who are already overloaded with work.

My main concern, even before the technical implementation of this
proposal, it's not to create more and unwanted overload for the
*current* contributors.

So that could be a task for somebody who has recurrent time slots available to [partly] manage the tasks planning. If the tool really provide efficiency in time management, we should be able to avoid harassing volunteers already overwhelmed.
