Currently it's hard to tell if someone already works on some issue. Of course, one can ask here, but I don't feel that it's an optimal situation. What do you think about the following rule: when someone starts working on a project that is going to take >1-2 days, it is advised to open a github issue with a very brief description of the planned changes, and self-assign it?

with minimal content of the issue being title + link to the branch.

I think it's a good idea to encourage this.

Also, if people stop working on the project (for whatever reason), they should mention it, and deassign themselves.

Sometimes it's hard to tell "I no longer work on this"; "I postponed this" sounds much better.
