The problem that it is almost impossible to find anything on tracker
related to specific component like logging. The issue description
doesn't always correspond to the actual content and it is really hard
to get through all the comments. Proposal - add modules field, allow
comment rating, issue and commend edits (Trac). Why won't I do
anything? Because my time is limited to 15 minutes slots and getting
developer instance takes more time, so I never pass through this
barrier (and TAL is not my language).

The first step is to gather a critical mass of people who acknowledge
the problem, who have their own ideas summarized and can share them at
the right moment. So, the specific proposal is to have a history that
can be analyzed by anyone. Right now it is extremely hard to summarize
problems - no custom tags on tracker, no way to organize email threads
- these are just two technical proposals to improve the process. One
more idea is the use case DB to collect API uses cases and detect
conflicts at early stage to draw attention to them. Every problem and
use case should have a number, should be clearly defined (much better
than tracker issue summaries) and should have a rating/star system.
That should be enough for now.
