I do have some time at hand I can spend for maintenance tasks of Org.

As Thomas S. Dye has pointed out in
[mid:address@hidden something that
seems to be missing in Org development is kind of a queue for open

IMO setting up patchwork as a semi-automated tracking system is a good
idea: As far as I could see from various projects that use patchwork
it actually /is/ kind of an issue tracker, tracking this special kind
of issues, patches.  If it is possible the patchwork installation
should not publish the submitters' mail addresses -- currently the
submitter's name is displayed with a mailto: link that contains the
email address.

Tracking patches with patchwork would leave open the question of other
kinds of issues: Bug reports w/o patches, feature requests, and
general user questions.  I'll try to track these issues and after I've
found a suitable work flow maybe put a file with open issues on Worg.

Both systems would form a queue of things to be done: The organizing
task consists of (a) reviewing non-patch-issues and (b) reviewing open
patch-issues in patchwork and (c) make decisions (e.g. apply patch,
comment, etc.).

This is something I volunteer to do.
