This was hidden in (Topic 4):

* Question of MF URI validity by Philip:

... but I agree this is of fundamental importance and should not be 
hidden in the Test Cases topic.
I suggest to write a new section 5.1 that should address this issue.

Absolutely! We are a number (hopefully not only me) that watch closely 
the list and make sure all comments are addressed and got a reply. But 
has humans sometimes fail, do not hesitate to re-issue a concern that 
you feel has not been properly addressed.

In this case, I assume you refer to: 
   . As ACTION, we need to revise the "Media Fragment Resolution and 
Processing general setup" which I suggest we write down in the section 5.1.
   . Further, you suggest we write down some pseudo-algorithm regarding 
the media fragment parsing. Yves has answered that this would mandate 
one implementation, potentially not the most effective one. We could 
also suggest one algorithm and make this section informative. I suggest 
we discuss that in today's telecon. I'm happy to hear your opinion on 
this list or on IRC.

No, we haven't setup bug tracker for this group. Watching the mailing 
list should be enough given the relatively small number of participants.

I agree that the mail traffic is completely irregular. There are 
sometimes some peaks with some discussion but sometimes the list is 
dormant. The group has not been active (apart Silvia :-) the last 2 
months partially from my fault. Hopefully, the mails sent today will 
revive the discussion.

Thanks for the feedback.
Best regards.
