The Great Online Fixme List

Lists the many things, which need to be fixed to make the system nice. Fixed here means, fixed in a nice, packaged, reproducible, i.e. as much as possible permanent way. Everybody is welcome to add items. If you sign-up for fixing something, a date will be added at which we will review if it has been fixed, or if not why. The problems are of a very different nature: some complex, some almost trivial. Not all are of equal urgency or importance, but all need to be fixed to have a production quality system.

When entering a problem, try to be specific, such that one can more or less clearly say that the problem has been fixed or not. "Make the login fast" is not very good, "Fix the crash problem with pgina" is a good (and hard) one.
