I think we can track this by the upload that is linked with the original
upload tagged with request. Someone could also reply to the original
request saying they are working on, etc. This is nice because there are
feeds for the comments on each submission.

I think we should migrate our content from the wiki to cchost and use
the aforementioned procedures.

Sure...this is the beauty of ccHost because we can leave that up to the
users. Thus, if a submission is not considered high-quality enough,
another user could make their own remix and re-submit it.

Well, I think the fact that when one submits a remix of a request/idea,
then its automatically evident that the request has been filled. We
could add something in the interface to show this and/or create a custom
request browser that has stats on filled vs/ open requests based upon
what tags are attached to an upload as well as what has been uploaded as
a remix of a request. What do you think?
