I'm not quite sure how doing it on the mailing list is any better then.
You could also just ask people in the description of the TODO to mark a
package as done right away, if there is no option to disable qt4,
instead of keeping it open. That way the list shows which packages
someone has looked at and either fixed or decided that they can't be
fixed yet.

I'm generally a fan of mailing lists, but working on a list of things
on a mailing list doesn't feel efficient. If I want to join in after
others have worked on it, I first have to read your mail and then tick
off each package that someone else has already fixed or said that it
can't be fixed. I'd rather have something that directly shows me the
current state.
