Hi,

Ref: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/2006/tests/process>

While my action item was to update the review process document, I have a 
proposal to extend the workflow slightly in order to better accommodate 
for recording bugs and issues.

Basically the only change is two new states that can be outcomes of step 
5, the "Task Force Decision":
  - "Bug" refers to a minor problem with the test sample, for example an 
incorrect value in the metadata or similar. These bugs can be fixed by a 
reviewer and are then put out for another round of group review by means 
of an online strawpoll.
  - "Issue" refers to a problem in the Technique (or other parts of WCAG 
2.0) rather than in the test sample itself. The test sample is used to 
outline the issue which is documented in the Wiki and sent to the WCAG 
WG for their review.

Please find an image to help outline the complete workflow, and to 
support our discussion later today. Once we agree on this, I will update 
the document accordingly.

Regards,
   Shadi
