You weren't in all those meetings that comprised of me, Tumbeliina and one
other rotating person. They basically went like this: discuss something a
little bit, decide what needs to get done, call for volunteer, silence.....
When this pattern repeats itself time and time again, one can't help but
get a certain feeling.

I agree. But we should also learn from our past mistakes, that's why we
make them.
Bringing up an issue is the first, and most important, step in learning
from one's mistakes.

I think that a way for this to happen would for all the work being done be
done on the Mageia servers, and each file contain a detailed history of who
did what when. That way we can all pick and choose what we are working on,
and at any given time know what anybody else is working on.
Having never done this sort of work, I can't recommend any software that
does this, but I have heard rumors of git and svn. Maybe one of them have
the features we need.
