Speaking of the bug tracker, would it be possible to merge the
Community section with the Arch Linux section (i.e. add a "Packages:
Community" category) so that all packages bugs will be in one project?
The only reason for a seperate project for community packages that I
can think of is to handle permissions as we don't want TU to close
bugs for core/extra packages.  If we could setup the permissions
correctly, a single section for packages bugs would facilitate things
for peoples who maintains packages in both core/extra and community
and for users who occasionnally submit their bugs in the wrong
