Bug tracking organization

I think our bug tracking is still a bit too chaotic.
Thus I intend to get some info on what bug tracking should look like.
So far, we've got "Wine 0.9.0 TaskList" and "Wine 1.x WishList" as the
two main metabugs.
IMHO Wine 0.9.0 TaskList is the main bug for all development work up to
And Wine 1.x WishList is everything that will definitely not be included
in Wine 1.0 (and possibly even more).
Now how about the layout of Wine 0.9.0 TaskList ?
I'd suggest the following layout:
Stable packaging (.deb, .rpm, .tar.gz)
programs metabug (what WineLib programs to supply ?)
window management metabug
common controls metabug
directx (direct3d etc.)
DLL separation metabug
OLE metabug (ok, not 100% correct, but main hole is DCOM RPC stuff)
file system metabug
memory management metabug
wininet, icmp, url, urlmon, snmpapi, mapi32, netapi32
"developer stuff" metabug
regression testing/test suite metabug
msvcrt, msvcrt20, crtdll
Misc. metabug (for other stuff)
"others" metabug (in order to deposit bug reports of "alien" wine packages
Is this structure ok ?
How should it be reorganized, what should be changed ?
If we get to a final result, then I'll make sure the 0.9.0 bug gets to look
OK, on to the next topic:
How should we organize the bug work ?
We need tons of people to take UNCONFIRMED bugs and make sure that they
reach enough quality in order to be reassigned as NEW (I expect ~ 30% of
all bugs to get dropped right away).
The second line of bug tracking would be experienced developers that are
mainly responsible for certain areas (like we already started to discuss).
There might even be a third line of "emergency" people for the really tough
BTW, I'm currently subscribed to wine-bugs.
I guess I'll stay subscribed for a while, and once the initial bug tracking
structure is solid and doesn't need special attention, I'll be able to
concentrate on specific areas, and then I'll probably unsubscribe.
Any comments ?
