I'm glad for you guys you had great time there!

I wanted to raise the Bugzilla topic, but waited for
the license discussions to finish.

In this regard there should be 2 categories of bugs:
a) metabugs
b) tasklets

The metabugs are big and pretty much general. Good
metabugs are: "Wine 0.9", "dll separation". Then we
make a lot of small bugs - "tasklets" and make the
metabugs depend on them.

I'm not sure about usefullness of this one. What we
need are people, responsible for Wine subsystems. Whe
a bug is confirmed than it is assigned to developer
(bug administrator ?), responsible for the subsystem.

We already have such list. It is called "wine-user"
Really, one of the goals of the wine-user list is to
discuss issues with wine and the wine users are
already signed to it! I don't want to have too many
mailing lists to subscribe to.
