Somebody really needs to take lead here. I won't change anything unless somebody tells me precisely what to do, so I can blame somebody. Messages like this (which I picked just arbitrarily) I will ignore wrt. specific action. Of course I *can* make the names a little longer - it's a thirty-second edit. The question is whether I should.
Again, taking your message just arbitrarily. The same remark applies to anything else declared as a proposal - I can only act on specifications, not on proposals.
I think Martin is right that someone needs to take the lead and do a complete review of how issues are handled. That way we can do a change in one big batch to something that works better for Python.
I have always planned to take the lead on this, but it will have to wait until probably Python 3.0 is out the door. If someone else wants to go through and really look at how we handle issues and propose a new schema that's fine by me.
