It would be awesome if for some way the PR database could be tied into
this so items in the database could be promoted as junior tasks. Adding
to that, an option in the PR web for someone to be able to vote on certain
PR's that should be promoted and ultimately giving a little more free time
to the PR admin by not having to visually inspect every PR that has not
been categorized for its worth as a junior project, and putting the
community as a whole to work in the voting.
Ultimately I would see something like the above reducing the PR database
greatly and freeing up some man hours for linimon@ so he can get some more
Think-Tank open for business ;)
