There's more than one issue come up in that discussion and it involves
work items for folks working on multidesktop.

Okay so as a board member who has issues she would like to see resolved
before the spin is approved, where do I file my issues? This mailing
list certainly isn't effective but I have no idea where else to report

Sure, but it'd be awful redundant for the board to say, resolve these 6
issues... then each of those 6 issues is a separate issue in another
trac instance. A lot of manual copying back and forth no?
