A bunch of issues were added to the tracker which prompted a discussion
of whether that was a good use of the tool. While we're sorting this
out, Mike reduced the list of people with write access to tracker.
Note the discussion continues...

# [18:57] <MikeSmith> we can add people back in after we have agreement
who should be in there
# [18:58] <DanC> in any case, yes, it makes sense to re-sync with people

See also the thread on discretion when adding issues in the issue
tracking list
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-wg-issue-tracking/2008May/thread.html#msg3 and http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-wg-issue-tracking/2008Jun/thread.html#msg3
which is cited from issues 42-50, e.g.
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/42


p.s. FYI, I started a discussion a little bit like this back in early
April...
