I'd guess that our bug tracker is not highly visible to CrossWire developers. I don't know how many look in there for things to do.

Because I am the Jira administrator, I've added myself as a recipient of all changes in Jira. (I've done this so that I can see if there are any administrative issues with Jira.) Sometimes, this will prompt me to comment on an issue.

Also, I've added jsword-devel as a recipient of all Jira changes regarding Bible Desktop and JSword. I've encouraged JSword developers to create issues for each change that will happen to JSword and to use that issue tag (e.g. JS-142) in submitted code. By doing this we use Jira as a planning tool for each release. We try to discuss an issue first on jsword-devel and then, if appropriate, in Jira. 

Every now and then, I'll look for other issues in there (relating to things that interest me: osis2mod, KJV, ...). But it is not often.

In Him,
