What sort of use cases we need to accommodate for bug tracking across
multiple projects?  I understand the need for all the 'core' stuff to be in
a single place.  Aside from the massive AMD migration, how common is it to
make contributions across, say, multiple dojox subprojects?  How common is
it to have one particular checkin to span multiple subprojects?

Yes, I agree there's a trade-off, but I don't think we can continue to
force everyone down the exact same path for infrastructure and expect the
community to thrive.  Perhaps related code could end up in clusters which
do conform to a particular bug reporting system (for example, widgets,
which despite currently being in dojox.widget clearly need to be defined as
independent projects)  Perhaps it would be that "Dojo Foundation sponsored"
code, whatever that means exactly, uses a particular bug tracking tool or
