It appears I've confused at least a few people with this idea, so let
me see if I can clarify a few points here:
* I'm _not_ suggesting that we get rid of Feature pages on the wiki.
I'm only suggesting that we move away from use wiki categories for
tracking the state of the feature, and track them using a custom field
in a ticketing system such as Trac.
* As the Fedora Program Manager already creates a ticket in FESCo's
Trac instance, this seems like the ideal place to track the feature
* While this idea spun out (sorry for the terrible pun) from the Spins
process discussion in Milan, it's really independent of the Spins
If you have other questions or concerns, please let me know!
