Well, personally I find it difficult to manahe such a number of requests 
in a collaborative way without a shared todo list. As Thogo said, the 
commission is looking for a way to self-organize in a more efficient way 
as the requests are scaling up compared to the past.

I'm not sure we need new software, probably some suggestions by similar 
bodies would be enough (ArbComs, committees of all sorts, chapters' 
boards... we have lots of them).
However, you're right that 
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Engineering/2012-13_Goals> is 
very important and deserves more attention.
