Huh?  Shouldn't the project maintainers manage the add on stuff?  Or are 
you meaning something that I'm not cluing into?

I *think* Peter is more refering to 'infrastruture' ... for instance, in 
KDE's case, their "central bug tracking system" includes all of the 
various sub-projects ... so if you want to report a bug for KDE, you go to 
their bug tracking system, and assign it to one of the "projects" ...

For instance, I run KDE ... when I install kdemultimedia out of FreeBSD 
ports, that includes a sub-project/application called noatrun ... when I 
go to the bug tracking system for KDE, I submit a bug that is not assigned 
to 'kde', but to noatrun specifically ... but it is all at the KDE web 
site, not at a noatrun project page ...

Think of it in terms of going to pgFoundry and being able to view all bugs 
with all applications, or click on a 'submit bug report' link without 
having to go find the specific application first ...
