Hi Virginie, All,

Has the group agreed to "track" reviews to facilitate Qs like "so, what 
is now being reviewed; when does the review for doc X end; who agreed to 
review doc X; where are the comments from the review of doc X; what were 
the results of the review" and such? I see there is an empty section in 
[1] that could include this type of data (or it might make sense to 
create a new page).

Is the expectation the reviews will be done on this list? The TAG uses 
GH for its reviews [GH]. It also seems something like [specifiction] 
could be used. How does PING conduct its spec reviews and track them (as 
it might make sense to use similar/identical methods)?

-Thanks, AB
