I did not plan this out too much. I would say let's use common sense rather 
than setting up processes. The columns are to give viewers an overview for our 
open process.

Anyway, here's the gist behind the columns when I created them:

Pre-proposed is for things nobody cared enough about to write the proposal. The 
idea is that pull requests/proposals should be created from each. 

Proposed is where things start being tracked as actual proposals with rst files 
and what have you. These are invitations for everyone to participate in the 

In discussion is to single out the tickets with the most traffiic for those who 
want to get am overview of current events. When the discussion stalls the 
ticket might move back a column. 

Last call means that, ideally, every committee member (and whoever else is 
interested) should do a final proof-read of the proposal. Things in this column 
are considered good and final by the participants in the discussion before, and 
if there is no objection, that's what goes into the report. 

The last column is to show what made it into the report pipeline for some time 
for our less frequent readers.
