Great, thanks!

I'd work with whatever issue tracking we end up with. In my opinion an 
issue tracking system has several key requirements:

 * It should automatically track e-mails on an issue so that there is 
   always a complete log of all mail on a topic.

 * It should enable people to clearly summarise all arguments in one 

 * It should allow for a clear statement of the current state of the issue 
   (resolved, open, etc).

But I'll let you and Dan and everyone else sort out what we actually use. 
I don't really have the bandwidth to figure out what the system is. So 
long as it does the above, it'll be fine. :-)
