Well, with trac, we can assign tickets to milestones (and then watch  
the graphs fill up as we close bugs for each milestone) ... but I get

The best way to make sure a change makes it into a release is to code  
it up and submit the patch (and even then, the submitter probably has  
to bug people to review and commit it).
