I'll take a look at the configuration in the next day or two. If I recall
how the form system is setup it will mean either editing each project's
forms individually or each report types. It Will really come down to asking
only the fields we really require for things. i.e. Time spent isn't really
a good field to have in most situations.

However, there are things like Owned by and Assigned to which normally
doesn't fit into a good use-case for general content issues. With the
structure of getting a content milestone done though there is a good use
for each of these. So we may need to create a new issue type just for
milestone task tracking. I will start with cleaning up the default forms
and we can discuss what exactly we want for specific content milestones
once that is finished.

One other thing I am going to do right now is turn off the issue listings
on the homepage. It adds a lot of extra stuff in the way and makes getting
to the project you want to a bit harder. I am going to look into writing a
script to hide the issue listings and show/hide them on some button click.
That way it is there, but tucked away.
