what we want my be part of the problem :)
It would also be useful to have possible dependencies. I recently saw
a patch come across from Sun, that Tom commented on, something about
increase the size of some value to 64bit. I don't recall exactly.
I am keeping URLs in the TODO list. Why don't people submit
improvements to the TODO list, rather than adding more complexity by
making a separate wiki for every TODO item? If no one updates the TODO
item, what makes you think they are going to do somethin in a wiki?
Do you want a todo list with 4 paragraphs (minimum) for each todo item?
I think the big conclusion we made long ago is that We are never going
to have enough detail anywhere that someone is going to be able to work
on an item without asking the community.
I don't think anyone is expecting that. I think that what we are
expecting is that they can ask knowledgeable questions.
