OB is closed until it reopens. At least, that's my information :)

The 'single thread, many bugs' approach is broken IMHO. It's far, far too hard to navigate and the discussion is so fragmented that it is also fairly worthless. After 5 pages, noone stands a chance of connecting the contributions up without endless trawling through previous quotes. Heavy inline quoting of previous discussions causes an exponential increase in the number of pages, also making it an exercise in frustration. Using a forum for this kind of thing is like trying to use a hammer on a screw.

What is needed *urgently* is simple : a proper bug tracker. Like bugzilla, or any of the countless other systems that exist and work properly. I don't know why this concept is proving so difficult to implement. It doesn't need to be embedded in the forum system.
