Ah. Well, there's the reason I was looking for - that makes perfect
sense, and it's more important to have the same one there than with
the main project.

Right.

So, I remain at two questions ;)

1) can we break down the TODO list into smaller pieces somehow? With
more direct listings of what needs to be done, so we can somehow
estimate when it can be done?

2) Do we want the project management somewhere more than a wiki page?
(and if we do want a wiki page, should we consider the pg wiki which
probably more people involved will have accounts at?). Much as I hate
it as a tool, if upstream is on launchpad, is there a point to using
that? Or as I offered before, a separate redmine setup on pg.org. Or
anything like that. I dont' really care about which one, but a plain
wiki page seems a bit clunky to me (says the guy representing a
project that refuses to have an issue tracker, but let's not get into
that discussion)
