---------------------------------

             Summary: Ability to tag tasks with mailing list threads discussing / working
on the help wanted task
                 Key: COMDEV-202
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-202
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: help
            Reporter: Nick Burch


The first time someone emails the list to volunteer for a given task, there's often a few
posts detailing more on the task and what's needed. When subsequent people volunteer, they
seem to come in "blind" and new threads are started. Often, information on the task gets scattered
through several threads

With the shiny new lists.apache.org interface giving the ability to view threads and even
participate, it would be good if we (as committers) could later edit a task to provide details
of one or more mailing list threads for a task. The interface would then link through to those
under a heading like "work so far" or "discussions so far". That way, additional volunteers
coming across the task can see more on what's needed, see the progress, and then join the
existing thread to help
