Sysadmin is not permitting the task tracking abilities of KDE Projects
to be used at the moment, as it is not possible to effectively use a
bug tracker when different projects are using different trackers.

As for using it for Task tracking for internal development use, that
is a little hard - as we couldn't limit it to only developers due to
limitations in the Chiliproject groups system (it can't handle groups
of 2000+ members very well at all) - not to mention that this could
possibly be seen as a split bug tracker....
