I think this conversation has been kind-of messy so far.  One of the 
things brought up during the telecon two weeks ago was to do a table 
showing what we were trying to do and what different pieces of software 
would do towards those goals.  That is a great idea and is going to be 
done at some point.  For now I'm putting testing software and figuring 
things towards that out on hold for a bit.

Let's try to simply list what the goals of centralizing things are first 
and work our way forward from there.  Yes, I do know this seems like a 
huge step back after a couple thousand word emails; overall though I 
think hopefully making things clearer by rebooting will help us all.  
So, here is a quick list of what I think we should be trying to solve 
based on what the original conversation was and then from a few things 
that happened from the initial conversation:

* Bug tracking on the WPD domain.  --There was a bit of talk at launch 
with people upset over needing yet another account and with this in 
particular even requiring one on another domain; plus, I don't think too 
many of us honestly like Bugzilla for our use-case.
* A way to track content revisions. --We have a handful of ways right 
now to track edits and who is working on or should do what.
* A system for discussing content in detail outside of being a main part 
of content. --Things like controversial topics or things people just 
want some discussion on.
* Issues that people have with the content. --This could fall under 
content revisions.  I'm thinking specifically about people suggesting 
ways of improving sentences or other grammatical things without actually 
editing it themselves.  Mostly what I see the current comment system 
being used for, but not as effectively as we could have a system working.

Are there any targets I missed in that list or you feel should be 
changed?  Let's get a target and why.  Then worry about how to solve the 
problem later in discussion.

Thanks,
-Garbee
