At the moment we have the following tracker groups:
  3rd Party
  Feature Request
  Not a Bug
  Python 2.1.1
  Python 2.1.2
  Python 2.2
  Python 2.2.1 candidate
  Python 2.3

Can these be cleaned up a lot? merge Python 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 into 
Python 2.1.x, merge Python 2.2 and Python 2.2.1 candidate into 
Python 2.2.x. We'd need to mass-move the existing entries to them
first, tho. I believe this needs one of the SF admin users to do

Also, why do we have Groups like '3rd Party', 'Feature Request', 
'Irreproducible', 'Not a Bug', 'Platform-specific', and 'Trash'?
Some of these seem like resolutions, Feature Requests have their
own tracker. 

On the subject of trackers, if FRs are merged into the main
tracker then 'group: feature request' makes sense. I'd hope 
that merging them should be a matter of a database update at 
SF, to change the 'atid' of the existing items... has anyone
asked SF if it's possible?

also, why is there an empty 'support requests' tracker? shouldn't
it be deleted?
