I keep the TODO.txt file in the root of the core up to date with
outstanding issues.  Where someone has signed up to "own" the issue I
try to put their email next to the item.  Unsolicited submissions that
correspond to unknown issues (like Bob's namespace work) sometimes queue
up in my inbox for a while before making it into the file, as we all
debate the action to take.  If we figure out a correct action then I add
"do foo" and if not I say "figure out foo".  :-)
