This is a very valid point. Trac is not being used for discussions about the
changes, and although its arguable that we should all be following Trac
tickets, in practise this is not really happening.

I'm not that familiar with Trac functions but wonder if there is a way for
it to message this list? If not, then perhaps anyone submitting a ticket
could post to the list, with a link to the ticket, asking for feedback.
Either way, its important that we post any suggested changes/pros/cons to
the ticket rather than here because there are some who use Trac but don't
wade through the myriad of discussions that take place on this list (many of
which are not suitable for core anyway).

Improved communication and involvement with Trac tickets seems like a
no-brainer to me.
