PTLs are focusing on their duties and, as a day is only composed of so few hours, it is possible they won't have the focus to work on said tools to track, in the longer term, the community.

If each project started to have their own implementation of tools, it would be opposite to one of my other goals, which is the simplification of OpenStack.

Yeah, if we can have exact requirement or Action items PTL miss then, it will be more clear about having such tooling. Overall I like the idea of giving more awareness about PTL work but that is more kind of teaching and guiding the PTL. Before we think of tool to manage PTL responsibility, we need to list down the issues it will solve.
Personally as PTL, I have gone through PTL responsibility guide and filtered the PTL tagged email which i daily check on priority. Further I follow the TODO things PTL has to do in release, PTG, Summit etc. which work perfectly for me. I find this more PTL responsibility than TC track those for PTL.
That's my point of view as PTL and as TC candidate but i would like to hear from other PTLs on this if they need help on their responsibility tracking and why.
