the main thing we're working is the software, so every enhancement to
building it, testing it, CI-ing it… affects the behaviour of the
software. TBH, PM stuff we're discussing is more fitting in discussion
stuff. As a rationale: if @ghar doesn't care about it, it's a discussion

it was just to baseline the discussion. I think "backlog" is a good fit
because unlike "planned", we can interpret it the way we want.

not really, you can show off help wanted on tough to do issues, easy are
just for newcomers. My first patches were'nt all on "easy" tasks.
