Personally I really like the task manager on savannah and the detail tasks are 
described there. If tasks were described in this detail in the tasks and todo 
list some would already been done by now.

I would really like it if more items would be added to this list.

I can give some examples of items that are not clear to me. But these are just 
some random items, many more are not really clear to me. Someone who wants a 
non-programming task can work on this and make me happy :)


 * A PPP interface.  This will require some restructuring of pfinet.

I have no idea what has been done and what needs to be done. AFAIK Neal worked 
on this and that makes me think this task needs to be updated.

 * A notepad program to hold and keep track of ports for shell scripts.

I have no idea what to think about this.

  * Handy shell programs to send msgport msgs, and change default init
    ports and ints.

What is this?

*** Deal correctly with setting the translators on /servers/exec.

What is correctly and what is this about?

*** Maybe file_pager_write_page should be able to accurately reproduce holes

Sounds like a block of 0's shouldn't be written as a block, but as a sparse 
file instead. 


There are many more examples that make me wonder what it is _exactly_ about. 
Many people have a look at this list and just give up... unfortunately.

I wonder how others think about this and had the same problems
