Just a random thought, and probably not in the right direction.
However, that's rarely stopped me before. :-)
I have a PmWiki site that works in tandem with a discussion list.
Since those on the list also write pages, I set the PmWiki mail
function to send daily updates of page changes to the discussion list.
Perhaps you could follow a similar approach? Perhaps have the mail
function on a per-group or per-category mechanism. Then, when somebody
had a PITS-related issue they could just update the web page. The
group receives an email about it and can discuss while also managing
the page itself.
In the past when I've used a web-based PM tool, it was the email that
did the magic. That is, all developers kept up with one another as all
activity on the PM tool was emailed to everybody. We kept in touch and
kept from stepping on one-another's toes.
