The idea of the patch number in the subject line works with that
streaming model because it merely marks streams so they can be grouped.
The defining event that marks the stream is a post to the patches list.
We already number posts to the bugs list, so in a way we could improve
tracking there and somehow link it to TODO items and patch submissions,
but because many TODO items are not the result of bug reports but come
out of general discussions, I am not sure tracking would work as well
there.  And what about features?  Do you start assigning numbers there,
and what is your trigger event?  In my opinion, as you start trying to
place more structure on the stream, the stream itself starts to degrade
in its dynamism and ease of use.  To me, that is the fundamental issue,
and risk.


I cannot really add to that except to say that you neatly summarized what I've completely failed to in my last few emails to Andrew. I agree completely.
