Using flyspray better is obviously something we need to do :) and with
that, maybe we should simply break tracker week/days into feature
areas so those that care/know about that area will be around to make
decisions?

Maybe we schedule a weekly tracker review (with plenty of warning)
like "on X date we will review all bugs/patches which apply to the
database". Then those people who dont care one way or another over
those taks ignore it, and those that do can help.

This does bring the problem where some features dont have an active
maintainer (like the database :p ) but then addng a patch which
appears to work and not break anything wouldnt change that.

Does flyspray support plugins? are there any out there which might help us?
