I am discharging and unrecorded issue with this email.

The OWL 1.1 issues list is managed through the Google Code project's  
issue list:
	http://code.google.com/p/owl1-1/issues/list

At the moment, this is open to anyone who has a google id (i.e., they  
don't need to be a member of the group). We have encouraged everyone  
interested to post issues to that list and the admins and editors  
have disposed of the issues in a variety of ways.

In the working group, only the chairs can formally raise (or reopen)  
an issue. However, I still think it's really convenient to use an  
issue tracker to manage proposed issues. Otherwise, we have to watch  
email a lot and things get harder to manage, esp. if at one point we  
don't open an issue but later we think we should. The Tracker tool:

	http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/
	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/tracker/issues/

makes this a bit easier by watching IRC and our mailing list.

I would like that we use e.g., Tracker in a world open way and ask  
people who really want to raise issues to put them in that issue  
management tool. The chairs then can dispose of proposed issues by  
either accepting/opening them or declining to do so. Sandro is  
investigating whether Tracker can be extended to handle this  
methodology.

I guess the main point is whether the group agrees that the interface  
to the general world should be an issue management system. If so,  
then we can implement it however we want.

Cheers,
Bijan.
