Okay, here's the deal: I've listed all of the immediate changes I want to make to the initial repo state that Cement generated. But, I want to track those changes in towncrier. But, towncrier assumes the existence of some kind of ticketing system. Since I'm currently developing locally, I'm a little tempted to do something in the vein of the various other issue tracking projects that integrate into the repository.
Writing that sentence down, though, has convinced me that I probably wouldn't get enough from integrating the issue tracker into the repository to justify the tooling effort (which wouldn't be much, just non-zero). So, I'll look into better-supported options later; I've got one in mind, but we'll see.
Anyway, once I can covert my notes into tickets, and start closing out tickets, I'll do that. Need to finish this entry ASAP because of other things I put off today, that it doesn't make sense to put off any longer.
