Personally, I find whats been rumoured around (basicly what i said
before) will be more than enough for Debian Development etc, no
offense to Ubuntu who obviously see their own personal/business
desires for such features to be implemented for their own project, but
personally, Debian's current BTS with a few modifications will be all
thats needed for the next release or two.

P.S: Colin - I take it you are the Developer for this?  If you need a
hand I may be interested in contributing at least something.
