What are the chances of getting other meta data fields on patches, i.e. changes to the patch manager? Categorizing patches could really help as a filter. For instance, I may be a Unicode genius and would like to see the patches associated with it.
Good idea. The PM clearly needs work. I see two places where you could submit feature requests: (1) the "Report SF Bug" item in the left side bar; (2) the "Feature Requests" discussion forum (http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=4&et=0)
I like the separation of python-dev and patches, but it is not a biggie for me.
For me it's just an annoyance, especially when cross-posting is used.
