The tracker instance contains a custom schema, and custom html templates.

Data were imported with a script Erik wrote that extracted the content
from the sf.net tracker.

What I think we should do is this:

* get our meta-tracker up and running

* set up a subversion module for the tracker, and import the existing

* set up the 'real' tracker instance based on the prototype, and create
  accounts for us admins, as well as reviewers for experimentation; allow
  us to reinitialize it as we make changes to the schema

* ask the various reviewers of the prototype to provide us a shopping list
  of things to enhance, or, better yet, let them participate in the discussions
  in the meta-tracker

* enhance the tracker incrementally, until everybody is satisfied

* do a final import of the data from sf.net, and do the final switch

Does this sound like a plan ?
