Sam and I agree that the barrier to entry is NOT very high to using Bugzilla.  If anybody as a real problem accessing Bugzilla, we suggest that they email the chairs, and copy the list, with clear instructions like "please open a bugzilla entry on my behalf with the following description: ..."

I have taken the liberty of asking the author of the comment to open a Bugzilla bug for the comment.

Subject: HTML comment list, Bugzilla, and the accessbilty task force

Hi Maciej, Paul, Sam, Mike, and Janina,

I noticed an accessibility comment today [1] on the
public-html-comments list [2]. Do people who comment on that list need
to file bugs instead of or in addition to commenting on that list so
that their concerns do not fall through the cracks? If so, I wonder if
people who are not working group memebers would go to the trouble of
setting up a Bugzilla accrount. I don't know, but suspect that it
might inhibit some people from expressing concerns.

How do comments on the comment list fit into the HTML working group
decision policy?

How do accessibility comments on the comment list fit into the
accessibility task force's work process?

Should a bug for how the comment list fits into the  HTML working
group decision policy [3] [4] be filed?

Thanks.

Best Regards,
Laura
