Bikeshed Reports [was: Status reports - why not regularly?]

Over 2003 I inadvertently started around four bikesheds. Every time it
happened I wanted to document it so that the beating of dead horses
could be kept to a minimum. It would basically list items of great
contention or things that just plain need a good hacker's attention.
Hindsight is 20/20, but I think a resource like this would have
prevented me from pushing people's buttons. It's not all that easy to
harvest bikeshed discussions from the mailing lists, and a lot of them
have to do with issues that end users are interested in. I adore
FreeBSD volunteers and don't like to see them bothered with what color
to paint a bikeshed.
I can dig up something on this if it's of interest to people.
