Hi Jose,

Your plan looks good and thanks for your hard work!

WRT mail lists, at the X Consortium I believe we managed
this problem with a bug-trackers list and a bug-fixs list.
The former was used exclusively for reporting bugs and
the latter was only used for fixes/patches.  The email 
to bug-fixes were numered [so they could be applied in order] 
and only contained the results from `patch` [with a context 
diff] so the patch could be automatically applied to a source
tree.  For an example, see:
