      Description

      The first time someone emails the list to volunteer for a given task, there's often a few posts detailing more on the task and what's needed. When subsequent people volunteer, they seem to come in "blind" and new threads are started. Often, information on the task gets scattered through several threads

      With the shiny new lists.apache.org interface giving the ability to view threads and even participate, it would be good if we (as committers) could later edit a task to provide details of one or more mailing list threads for a task. The interface would then link through to those under a heading like "work so far" or "discussions so far". That way, additional volunteers coming across the task can see more on what's needed, see the progress, and then join the existing thread to help
