Yes, because the generic ones are confusing, hard to search, easy to
misuse, easy for things to get lost, easy for dupes to crop up --- easy
for things go wrong all over the place.

The dedicated apps have a very limited purpose and work the way we want,
avoiding all these problems: in essence, they are but a glorified
repository of categorized links to our mailing list archives.

We've had wiki pages for open items for 10 years now.  It's gotten
boring and tiresome.
