I asked a similar question in this thread in the very beginning: What
actual problems do you have with Phab? There might be usable solutions
out there already. The last time someone actually listed problems we got
a lot of good responses, some of which I will try out myself.

I am always in favor of improving the documentation. We need more
concrete problem descriptions though.

I do not. Arguably because I have not yet used it. However, "it is a de
facto standard" is a weird argument for anything. People are advocating
to move away from mailing lists towards other system though mailing
lists are, or at least were, "de facto standard". Is the idea to keep up
with the "de facto standard" or to improve the status quo (for group X*)?
