Maybe it makes sense to have a TODO file (a simple text file) in the
svn repository.  Bug reports and patches can be added there if they
can't be fixed/applied immediately.

I suppose that everyone involved in TeXLive development maintains his
own TODO list somehow.  But I'm sure that it's better to have such a
file in the repository.

If someone reports a bug, the email message can be appended to the file.   
If someone fixes the bug, he simply removes the message from the file.

Sounds like extra work at the first glance.  But maintaining private
TeXLive-TODO files is also extra work, and much less efficient.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
