We have a bit of a bug backlog right now, due to TPAC, Ian being on  
vacation for a while, and Ian spending some time to update the WebApps  
specs that were split from HTML5 a while back.

I have asked him to make a dent in some of the HTML5 bug backlog and  
he has started doing so. He also told me he believes he can spend the  
first week of January to process any bugs that are left, and get the  
list down to 0 at that time.

This seems reasonable to me, given that there are hundreds of bugs to  

I would rather not have people raise tracker issues until we know  
there is actually a point of disagreement.
