Ok to clear something up real quick, or rather to clear a few things up.

mantisbt.org has nothing to do with Ardour, other than we use the software
they produce for bugtracking;)  Not saying don't donate to them, but if you
donate to that website it certainly won't get to Ardour;)  That website is
dedicated to the development of the Mantis bug tracker, which Ardour
utilizes on its own site to track bugs for Ardour, but they two projects are
not directly related in any way.

Also to get to the Mantis Bugtracker that Ardour uses, simply click on the
"Issue Tracker" link at the top of the Ardour webpage(Next to "Download"
etc.)  It is part of the primary navigation for the site.

Finally the way that supporting particular features and bugs currently works
is that you make a pledge.  Nothing holds you to fulfill that pledge other
than your own word/honor.  You do this in the Mantis Bug Tracker, at the
same place where the feature request is noted, or the bug report is filed.

Related and also for the record, the Mantis Bug Tracker is the primary place
to request new features or file bugs.  That way it doesn't get lost in a
pile of email or IRC logs.

Hope that clears up some misunderstandings on the topic.
