I don;t know much about the piratepads but did have this
happen once or twice when working on a pad with Rufus,
and he had to set it to public so that I could see it. There
must be an administrative knob that the creator of the
pad can use to do this.
This should be better documented.

Fixed. Was just a permission problem in the filesystem,
no idea how it got that way.

I don;t think anybody in particular gets notified when a
new ticket is created. Not sure how many have feeds set
up in their RSS reader (and if they have the *right* feeds
set up so new tickets get seen).
Better integration of the many tracs and the mailing lists
might help to some extent.
Most of the people who are in a position to help with this
sort of thing already have a lot on their plates.

That isn't a terrible idea. I've suggested before talking to
the http://koumbit.org/ folks as clueful, disinterested
third parties that might be interested to help keep the
trains running on time.
Otherwise judicious use of the squeaky wheel tactic
might be the most effective way to get things done.
