Please note that I really wanted to give it a chance, though. But I'm
starting to see why no one uses it... I agree, JIRA will be my final
choice... Sorry for all the noise!

Good idea. I had the same concern with updating the description of the
ticket. But if we put a big warning on the nature of this ticket, that
would be all right. My other concern is the discussion itself. Do you
think it should take place within JIRA (with the risk that the ticket
gets quickly packed with messages), or here on the ML, with frequent
updates of the ticket description?

I'm sorry I'm wasting so much of everyone else's time to discuss how
we should discuss a general topic... I hope we will get down to the
real thing soon.
