An issue tracker should be used for tracking issues, not for discussing
designs or writing code. That's the point Greg and I have been trying to
make. More often than not, instead of filing an issue about a minor nit,
it would make more sense to simply fix said nit in the code or
documentation or wherever.

When I first started looking at this project, I was astounded that I
could find hardly any actual code commits in the noise of ticket changes
on the bloodhound-commits@ list -- and at that point ceased to wonder
why not much progress had been made in almost a year.

This is a bit like the hammer and nail story -- just because you have an
issue tracker doesn't mean every passing thought needs to be recorded in it.
