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 ...
