I'm already here. :-)

For each issue I identified, if it doesn't seem to be reported in Trac
already, I'm reporting it and providing a suggestion for how to fix it.
(Only a suggestion, because often there are multiple possible solutions
to a usability problem.)

It will take me a while to do this for all the issues, because Canonical
has plenty of other design work for me to do. But I plan to be
subscribed to this mailing list at least until I've finished. So if
anyone has a burning desire to fix something I haven't reported in Trac
yet, and isn't sure what an appropriate design would be, I'll be happy
to discuss it here on the list.
