There are several reasons why you might consider creating an issue for this:

- it goes into the roadmap, which means that it is easier for jb to decide 
wheter a release should wait for this
- it exposes to users that kdenlive does _not_ actually work with relative 
paths & 
- it exposes to users that someone (you) is working on it (at least if you 
assign yourself to it)
- it tracks all discussion related to it at a central place
- it allows non-devel-list-subscribers to follow and comment on the discussion
- related to that: when you commit something, you can include a reference to 
the issue, making it easier for others to test/verify your changes

Those are some arguments for creating issues. Please note, that I am a great 
believer in issue-tracking, so my opinion may be heavily colored.

Against issue tracking is, amongst other things, the fact that it is more 
cumbersome, and that you may not reach the audience (jb, jmpoure, dan, 
others) that you wish to involve. There are likely more. I guess if you do 
not want to create an issue, then don't... :-)

There are many gods which Christians reject. I just believe in one less god
then they do. The reasons that you might give for your atheism toward the
Roman gods are likely the same reasons I would give for not believing in
