I think we should keep https://github.com/w3c/wai-policies-prototype 
because it has more and more recent comments, IIRC.

We can rename the repository to something more sensible, for example 
w3c/wai-policies (all links that went to wai-policies-prototype would 
not resolve anymore, however. There might be a way to set redirects.)

(I wonder if the name is a big problem – the perspectives videos repo 
is wai-showcase-examples, for example.)

I think the issues need some coordinated actions from Robert and me and 
maybe MaryJo. _Maybe_ I can have a look at what needs to be done and do 
some/all of it while y’all are doing the user-testing.

I am just using https://github-issue-mover.appspot.com to move all 
issues from the policieslist to the policies-prototype repository.

I can do that :-)
