[Web Comm] Artifact Tracker

Frank, I agree that the Project Tracker is not all that user-friendly right now.  We have an action item from the last meeting for Daniel to simplify it as much as possible (I got horribly lost in the extensive setup screens).
The problem is that the rest of us are still in a pretty steep learning curve with CN, but unless we have a task tracking system in place we're going to get quickly overwhelmed.  Trying to manage requests coming in via email, wiki, and multiple other paths is just not going to work.
Couple items:
- Did the board get my message about the mission statement?  I was going to post it last night, but there was an IE where there should have been an E.G. or we would have been committing to only supporting EOGeo.
- The defect search didn't work because it was a task.  We still need to define another default query for tasks.  I defined the second query because I ran into the same problem, but I figured that by 3am it was about time to call it a night :)

The artifact tracker seems a bit quirky as currently configured.

I submitted a request to create the fundraising.osgeo.org project, but when
I came back and ran the "open defects" query nothing was listed.

When I ran the unassigned artifacts query I saw my request.  But when
I selected it I see the message "No artifacts were chosen which are
currently editable.".  I was going to complain that I had no way to
even check the status, but I see that is wrong since the other tabs do
show information about the report.  But is thee a reason I, as artifact
creator, can't add comments?

If you want non committee members to submit things via the artifact tracker
I would encourage you to do what you can to make it easy to use.
