The people act on assumption that only pharo team uses tracker.
While my original intent, when creating this tracker was to have
separate tracker
for Cog project, neutral and independent from other projects
(Squeak/Pharo/Etoys/name yours).

The dilemma is that in Pharo we use flavor of Cog with own configuration..
and some issues are not related to Cog in general, but to things we
want in our flavor
(like making/fixing/including certain plugin with our VM etc)..

For example, look at issue

So my question, if such issues should belong to that list.

Another dilemma is integrating bugs/fixes. For instance, look at

which was integrated to pharo vms and works there for a while now.
But not integrated to main branch.. and dilemma, should i close the
issue as resolved,
or keep it open?

But besides that, comes question: is people (other than in pharo team)
need this tracker or using..
because if not, then there's really not much sense in keeping it, and
pharoers can track things
with own tracker, without much fuss.

The wrong part in what was happened is acting before discussing.
