Status/doc files there are fine, as long as they are kept up to date
or removed as soon as they are no longer necessary.  So this file
should be committed, or if you prefer, integrated into the top-level
TODO file.

Agreed, in fact necessary.  Having duplicate code is a terrible idea.

Documentation is very important - and unfortunately tends not to get
written if the code goes in first.  So I propose that we don't allow
any contributions to go upstream unless they have full POD.

What are you proposing for this?  Most stuff is documented by manual
pages, which I think is perfectly sufficient.  Also the manpages get
copied to the website (if that was what you meant by "Online").
