Issue status update for http://drupal.org/node/19847

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    tracker.module
 Category:     feature requests
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Anonymous
 Reported by:  gordon

 Status:       active

it is more than just subsituting comments for followups. issues use the
node_revisions api to store the field history of each followup.
changing that would be a very big rewrite. the only way to implement
what gordon suggests is to keep the revision stuff but make commenting
an unrelated action. in other words, when you add a comment, you could
not change the status, component, etc. those would need a different
edit operation.
as for comment uploads, i think that could b e solved by b uilding out
hook_comment() so it has the same operations as hook_nodeapi(). then
upload_comment() would handle this task just like it does today for

When looking at a tracker/user/{uid} can it also include as it does for
comments posted against nodes responses to issues that you have posted
Esp. being a developer, this would make it sop much easier to monitor
posts that you have made, and continue the conversations.
This post I will be able to track as I am the author, but any I am not
the author but a contributer to the conversation I cannot follow as

I think part of the problem is that project.module has its on comments. 
I'd vote for integrating project.module with comment.module (and
extending comment.module to allow attachments to comments).

It would be better to use the comment module for the project module,
except for the fact that comments don't allow for file uploads.
I do feel this is a large usability issue for drupal.org, and would
make life much easier if this was remedied.
