OK, I've done some digging and I *think* we have a working tracker.

I think the problem was that I included spaces in the short name of the 
doc thinking it was just a text field (it isn't).

So, I have started all over again. You can follow the link from the wiki 
menu bar to
https://www.w3.org/2006/02/lc-comments-tracker/68239/ where you'll now 
see a list of two documents with the same name. Ignore the first - 
that's the old one that doesn't work.

The second one, which I have linked directly from the wiki at
seems like it might work. The new list is at


There you'll see 4 comments in the tracker, the three from Andrea and 

Can you try adding another, presumably Herbert van Stompel's and see if 
it works for you?

If so then we're up and running...
