The problem is that we use a tracker that we can not change. Google can just send all emails or none. That's it.

In addition, it does not support sub-projects. So we have just a mess of 450 issues, instead of sorting them nicely. E.g. to


and then realizing that each in itself has not that many issues... (devide and conquer *does* work!).

It's always the same: Perfection is something else, but if we do not just use what we are just stuck.
