imho, I would keep the list. Launchpad while OK has been the bane of my life
today. I went to
launchpad and searched bugs for sweep and got no results. The same search in
google got me
a bug page in launchpad. Not good for the system when for a specific bug for
an app you get no
results and then a google search throws the bug pages up. :-/
