Your motivation is perfectly fine and I always did so in the past to
make sure I will not forget anything.  For me this turned out to be the
best way to not forget anything.

However, in the mean time I tried to enhance this simple method to not
forget into something which is way more helpful also for others because
it does not only tell me what I do not want to forget but also tells the
world what we are working on.  So I just used this simple example as a
way to promote the advantages of team maintained packages in Vcs and a
good chance to invite people working on packages fitting into the team
to join.  At least this was the way Debian Med team was growing:  Just
using our development tools and invite people to use them for their own

Kind regards
