     9 * bug tracking and to-do list management (the classic installation)
     10 * customer help desk support (with a wizard for the phone answerers, linking to networking, system and development issue trackers)
     11 * issue management for IETF working groups
     12 * sales lead tracking
     13 * conference paper submission and double-blind referee management
