sorry for the delay of replying to this thread, but the LinuxTag was

as long as LP doesn't offer a real task tracker...there is no solution
(without introducing new tools which are not linked to LP).
The discussion is always about workflow tasks...and not about real "bug

So...what are the LP people thinking about adding workflow structures
to LP? IMHO this could be also a good "business case" for customers...
