Here are some potential action items for taking this further:

- anybody can test any of these tools and give feedback in these thread,
even if you don't want to be an admin or mentor.  Students are also
welcome to give feedback.

- we probably need to get some feedback from DebConf team, they already
discuss[1] it, maybe somebody will be willing to comment in this thread.
 Two specific questions for DebConf team: are you happy with Kanboard or
might you use another solution for 2019?  Do you see a possibility of
running a shared instance of it or do you really want your instance to
be DebConf only?

- creating a wiki page about the Kanban board evaluation and how it will
be used in this team.  One topic specific to mentoring: can we create a
template with a list of tasks that have to be repeated each year so we
don't have to manually re-create each task in each round?

- checking whether everything needed is already packaged in stable or
backports (DSA may not host it if it is not packaged)

- discussion with DSA about whether they are willing to host it and
which server might be available.  Probably needs an RT ticket, DebConf
team already opened ticket #6836
