The lack of a proper bug/issues tracking system
1. creates frustration.
2. leads to discussions then time which would be better used for  
constructive comments.

Would someone or a pair of persons agreed on tracking issues on the  
list?
I don't find hixie's inbox a reasonable system in terms of community.
