I suspect the Wiki will quickly become unmanageable as a way to deal
with requests (although I could be wrong).  At the same time, much of
the bugzilla interface is overkill for new package requests and other
such things.  I don't have any experience with the bugzilla,
perhaps you (or someone) would be able to enlighten us about some of the

I can understand that a lot of the stuff bugzilla does may be overkill,
but it also seems ideally suited to some of the other stuff.

What's needed is simple way to track a package request through the
CLOSED, or similar.

From the other side, contributors need some way of looking for all
packages that need sponsorship/approval or review or a new bugzilla
component.  Once the component is added, most of the package management
can/should be done through there.

In addition, existing packages need an easy way of requesting a new
branch or build.

Bugzilla seems well suited to all of the above, provided there was a
simplified interface that ensured relative consistency among the
requests, but maybe I'm missing something.
