I have been quiet for a while due to some other projects I am involved in. Today I started creating packages again and I checked the bugs list to see what I wanted to pick up.
Looking at the enormous list of requests I was a bit overwhelmed to say the least and here is it that I found Launchpad to be missing certain options.
In the overview I missed dates, when was the request placed, when was the last update, why can't I sort or filter by status. I know, launchpad isn't maintained by us, but still.
Another thing is that of all the requests I believe I know of only 2% what they are. And not so much precisely but what category it would be at the website, like Games, Audio etc. See the thing is I tend to build packages that I think are useful and packages I would use myself. I won't create packages for games for example, I don't play games on my Linux box, I rather play them on the wii or on my Windows box. So it would be helpful if I could see in a glance what the request is for. I think this could be something we could implement, we could use tags to link the request to a certain category on our website.
