Message-Id: <1207868325.10875.78.camel@pav.lan>

I was interested in telling some peers how many
open issue we have, so I took a look...
  http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues

Since we started using tracker, it's been enhanced to
distinguish "raised" from "open". I'm inclined
to let "open" mean we have a clear plan or next
step for working on it, vs "raised" which means
it's probably an issue but nobody has volunteered
to address it or move it forward.

We have 40 issues, including dups etc.;
the updated breakdown is:
  7 open issues
   3 HTML 5 spec issues
   3 HTML Principles/Requirements issues
   1 with no associated product
  13 closed issues
   2 W3C publications
   1 HTML Principles/Requirements issue
   4 HTML 5 spec (closed by the editor;
       tests and WG decision pending)
   6 dup/oops issues
  20 raised issues

We're approaching the point where we can use this issues
list to measure progress and estimate the schedule of
the project, though I wonder how many issues remain
uncaptured, and the correlation between discussion
topics in email and the state of the issue tracker
is still not as good as I'd like.

Our issue handling process leaves a lot of room
for improvement. I suppose now is as good a time as
any to discuss it, though (a) I'm about done for
the day and (b) Chris Wilson is on holiday for another
week or so. So please allow a couple days to a couple
weeks for responses.
