I don't have specific systems in mind.  I've seen one or two that could
be useful (Mantis, for example), because they seem easy.  But I'm not
married to any one answer.

You and I are talking about different things.  I brought this up with
regards to issues unfinished, from a release POV.  I'm not sure what you
include in that category: documentation to write, unfinished features,
etc.  But I certainly include in it bug reports, so I cannot put a limit
on "the issues I want to record" of 50 or 100 or any other number.

I was talking about rejected bug reports, of course.  The ones that are
determined not to be a bug after all.

Richard, excuse me, but till three days ago, no one was "trying to do"
anything on this matter (in general; of course each one of us has their
particular TODO).  What you now want to do is clear, and what I'm
interested in doing is too, and they aren't the same thing.  I accept
the decision, as you said; i.e., if you create an etc/ISSUES and put in
it things to do, I'll use it.  But this has *nothing* to do with having
or not having a bug/issue tracker.  You're talking of a planner of sorts.
