Tracker prefix

You may be familiar with the feature of Tracker that you can send emails
with a subject containing the keyword "ISSUE-<number>" or
"ACTION-<number>" and Tracker will automatically put a reference to the
email in the issue or action. When different groups with separate
Tracker instances send emails to each other, the issue / action is
connected to the receiving group's Tracker, not the sending group's tracker.

There is now a feature of Tracker to allow groups to prefix their issue
/ action references with a keyword, to ensure that wherever the message
is sent, it is associated with the correct Tracker instance. The keyword
for the HTML Accessibility Task Force is "a11y". When sending references
to HTML A11Y TF issues, you can send them in the form of
"a11y-issue-<number>" or "a11y-action-<number>". When sending just to
our mailing list, you can also send without the prefix as before.
However, given that a lot of issues and actions are copied to the HTML
main mailing list, which is associated with a different Tracker
instance, it might be a good idea for people in the task force to get in
the habit of using the prefix as a general rule.
