Austin's Tickets.

Austin, of Kakapo and Close fame, has been creating new tickets avidly as he develops his various projects. I asked him to put together a prioritized list of his various tickets so I could focus my attentions fixing bugs that would benefit him the most. Without much delay, he complied. Here's a truncated list:
1 = blocking something;
2 = not blocking, but I strongly feel this is needed;
3 = nice to have;
4 = I'm not sure of the status.

ticket priority summary

1442 3 Sub PMC should support getattribute
1513 3 Test::Builder formats TODO tests wrong/poorly

I've crossed out the tickets I've already closed, and there are about a half-dozen more that I suspect will be closed within the next week. I'm trying to find the domain experts for some that I don't feel comfortable/competent to close myself.

I would like to see all of these get resolved not just for the benefit of Kakapo, but for the good of Parrot in general. 


I love that you've posted this up here - I'm pointing to it now in irc. But #1492 needs a newline up there...
