John,

I don't know if I moved all of those to the "Needs Approval" state, but 
the rational about doing this is that I added a proposed reply or a 
possible solution for the issue in the notes section but wanted to ask the 
working group to look at those issues first. They were 'almost' straight 
forward to solve in my opinion but they weren't simple typo's to fix.
