Dear URW3 participants,

This is in response to the action I got at the last telecon to give  
some guidance on the use of Tracker.  The documentation is fairly  
straightforward and can be found at http://www.w3.org/2005/06/ 
tracker/.  This email will provide some immediate highlights.

The URW3 Tracker instance is at http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/urw3/ 
tracker/.  The sidebar on the right is the navigation to all the key  
things Tracker tracks.  For example, if you click All under Actions,  
you will see all the actions Tracker captured from our last telecon.

Note from http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/irc, Tracker likes to see  
the action entered in IRC in the form (and giving the result)

<dino> ACTION: Dean to dance like a monkey - due next Friday
* trackbot noticed an ACTION. Trying to create it.
<trackbot> Created ACTION-171 - Dance like a monkey [on Dean - due  
2005-07-08].


The basic format is:

ACTION: <user> to <title> - due <when>
or
ACTION: <user> to <title>

Recall from the last telecon, the trackbot was unhappy when we  
assigned things to the Editing Team because it couldn't recognize it  
as a user.

If you want to work on an issue, action, or other tracked item, click  
the appropriate category link, such as Open under Actions.  This  
gives you the list of open action.  Note, if you click All, you will  
see a 4th action which I closed earlier today.

Click on an action (or issue if in an issues list) and you get the  
details.  If you want to add something, click on the Edit link on the  
lower right.

I just did this and added the line, "Sending email shortly and we  
will see how it links to this action."  I then clicked the Update  
button, and the entry showed up under Related notes.  In the title of  
this email, I have ACTION-1 because Tracker should be monitoring this  
list and should connect this email when seeing this either in the  
title or text of the email.  When I send this, we'll see what happens.

At this point, I am not sure what other guidance to provide, but I  
expect we'll come up with questions as we proceed.

I will add the Tracker link to our home pages when I next edit those.

Let me know if there are other questions I can try to answer or  
forward on to the Sys Team.

Ken
