Re: interface for providing public comments on last call working drafts

In addition to what Sam mentioned, the drafts themselves have an easy-to-use comment form in the status section.

If anyone wants to set up additional front ends to bugzilla that are easier to use or more accessible, then I expect such work would be welcome.
