Yes, this was a reason the number of tabs has been kept to such an absolute
minimum (3 items!). Ideally this will be something that will render well on
a tablet or even smaller mobile device.

It's an icon similar to My Profile / Preferences.

extension I guess.
Yeah, definitely one to do, but one for the future I reckon.

For now the design idea was to have something more visually appealing than
the default trac and which makes the most used features of the defect

possible in terms of usability and add more later as the requirements

Make sense?
