Praise be!

I am in heaven...

yup, but these could hang off issues or exist somewhere totally seperate. These
artefacts are actually significantly less important than the status of the
issue, who's looking after it, when it was last touched and the other
categorisation details. In this respect, the fishbowl is currently completely
arse about face ;-)

Hierarchical management based on trust metrics?

Not so important right now...

I suspect this is because people don't even know these projects exist, once this
has been addressed with the points that had me worshiping, I'm betting this
problem will disappear of its own accord...

Those'll happen when someone does eventually bump into these dormant
proposals/projects, sees they haven't been touched for 2 months and suddenly
gets all irate jumping around: "why the fuck hasn't someone done something on
this very important issue?!"

Not to mention suffering the same resource problems that ZC suffers right now

That's the first time I've heard of that other than other posts in this thread

Sounds like we need to build a decent fish pond, and _please_ can we unify it
with the collector.
