Hi Frank,

I agree that we should use Trac in more depth for our 6.0 development.
We also have to clear old bug reports and associate them with the latest 
release, as you suggest.

For the coordination of translations though I think the current tools 
serve us well, since each language is maintained by separate teams, so 
we do not need to put much details in Trac (this would require enough 
effort). If you just mean to track milestones for translations (eg 
Overviews completeness, Quickstart completeness, sync of each language 
with trunk english documents etc) then +1 from me.
