[darcs-users] Issue Manager wanted

Hi all,

I've fallen down on my bug tracker duties, and I don't think I can get

Also, I've entered a rather busy period in my life until at least end of
August.  Aside from hunkering down in general, I think it would be best
if I officially stepped down as Issue Manager.

Can somebody take over?

Issue Manager is really a policy job.  Yes, there is issue triage
and delegation as the meat of the job, but when you're not triaging
issues and delegating tickets, what the ideal IM would be doing is
figuring out a bug tracking workflow that actually works... that
actually works even if people don't have time to read policy pages
(so the whole thing has to be self-explanatory!), or if the IM has
other stuff going on in his/her life.

The GTD-based one I'd come up with http://wiki.darcs.net/BugTracker
seems to be too process laden, too heavy and fragile.  Your duty would
be basically to rethink (again) and refine.  This probably means trying
to do some bugtracking for a while, talking to the team, and getting a
sense for what works and does not.


PS. Note that I'm really not comfortable with this being a "team" role,
diffused in the community.  I think we need somebody to claim this as
ultimately their responsibility, which doesn't mean they do all the work
