Really short introduction: I work on Roundup occasionally. I'm an
interested onlooker with the pypy project. I might join a sprint if
another one is held in the Netherlands.

Yes, you're using a backend that doesn't work with numeric ids yet. This
means the ids are stored as strings, so you get an alpha sort. Maybe one
of the codespeak admins can switch the tracker to a backend that does
support numeric ids (e.g.: PostgreSQL)? Instructions are here:

Nope, you can't make your own groups. Try taking a look at the 'Show by
Workpackage' query. All the issues that have workpackage 'wp00_general'
are sorted under one heading, all the issues with the workpackage
'wp01_management' are sorted under one heading, etc. The issues are then
sorted within the subheading.
