My point was to bring these issues to the group's attention since they were
not previously reported. As noted in
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-media/2015Jan/0024.html,
we will use GitHub for new bugs.

As for archiving, we can configure github-notify-ml (the tool that sends
emails to this list for new GitHub issues) to email a new archive-only
mailing list (i.e. public-html-media-github to ensure data is not lost. For
more information on GitHub and W3C, see the thread at
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/chairs/2014OctDec/0145.html and
