Right, I'm one of those users (have been in the past and am somewhat still) as well as a former
member of the PMC and so acting like I'm suggesting screwing them over ("them" which would
include me) by simply suggesting that solving this mess in completeness is intractable so
you just have to go with a heuristic (which I'd argue spending oodles of time on isn't worth
it) is also a bit insulting.

I suggested that JIRA can handle this. We're using it  in oh, about 2-3 Apache projects I'm
on and it's working great. If you think it's a mess for all the stuff you put in the email,
great, that's your prerogative. I'm just saying in my experience it hasn't been that bad.
