I thought I comment on this a bit; ticket comments and descriptors in
Trac enjoy the same formatting rules as the wiki pages. Meaning, in
the above comment you could get a nice bullet-list by simply replacing
the dash with a star.  It is even possible to nest lists.  But that
would require you to write the whole item on one line, which may be a
bit frustrating from time to time (will there be a wiki-engine that
can handle manual line-breaks any time soon?).

(for reference; http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/WikiFormatting )

Since most of the communicating in respect to tickets and patches
should be done in the tracker from now on, I thought it was worth
commenting on.  If it wasn't, just ignore this mail.
