Sure. Actually, there are existing issues for each of these.

http://subclipse.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=721

http://subclipse.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=513

We should get Alberto and Thaminda to create tigris accounts so we can
assign the issues to them and give them roles in the project.

Yes, I agree. If there is a high amount of email regular email
traffic we could skip or cancel these, but we should definitely try
for something regular as a way of insuring we keep in contact.

Yes, I planned to do that when they get ready to code. No point in
doing it before then as it just creates more to merge. For Alberto, I
anticipate we will want one or more new plugins so that we can keep
all the new dependencies out of the core plugins.

All sounds good to me.
