I don't.

<thinking out loud>
What can we implement now that helps and doesn't hurt?
Could we have a second bugzilla instance  for developers only?
Or trac? or Jira? or mantis? or fogbugz or??

Why is this so hard?

Mainly I would like a place for developers to do real planning.

Suppose we wanted to go agile in kdepim. where could we do that?
Jira has support for agile planning, I know.

Suppose we simply wanted to put the feature plan on a real planning tool?
I'm sure any of the tools mentioned above could help with that.

We seem to be in agreement that repurposing the current bugzilla instance isn't a good solution

But the current wiki list isn't good either

Something that we can link to from release board is needed.

I love Jira, but costs $$
