The idea is to encourage developers to choose and assign to themselves primary tasks where
possible, and secondary tasks otherwise. Keeping a regular sprint schedule gives a nice pace
& rhythm to the project, and the looming end of a sprint can often be a spur to find a
bit of extra time to complete a task - I think this helps to keep the momentum of the project
going, especially since we have a very small community at this stage.

sounds good
