Well there is Mantis; currently I have 16 reports open, some of which  
are suspended pending answers or information from other people.
For example, 6669 is waiting on info from Andreas
6828 is waiting on answers from anyone interested  (see [Vm-dev]  
Mantis http://bugs.squeak.org/view.php?id=6828)
5228 is waiting on response from Ron
5236 is waiting on response from Andreas and/or Eliot (though mantis  
claims I sent a reminder to 'iho' whoever that might be!)
7022 is waiting on a response from St. Expedite or St. Isidore (http://www.wired.com/culture/lifestyle/news/2004/11/65184 
6966 is waiting on repsonse from kbrown and/or jmm

Yes, something like that would be nice. Of course, a large part of the  
problem has been that I've been busy for the last while and unable to  
pay much attention, for which I must apologise. Right now I'm trying  
to catch up and get things into a good enough state to make it  
sensible to run a more open repository for VMMaker. Getting answers  
from the above mentioned people would be a big help.
