[Bf-committers] Tracker curfew to start on Monday

One question that I have is how will known bugs and issues be documented
In the past, there has been a list of todos on the old wiki which often
became quickly out of date.
These have since been copied and pasted to
https://developer.blender.org/project/board/53/ (in the wiki column)
these tasks are just collecting dust there also.

What needs to happen is a way that these issues can be documented well and
stay up to date.
In the process of these old todos need to be screened and integrated into
this new method of logging reports.
