Below is a plain text listing of the 63 issues posted against GL 3.1 in
Bubzilla and the categories into which I've lumped them. This category
listing also appears in the attached HTML file, which also contains a
table listing the individual issues and my proposed actions/resolutions.

Overview
There are 63 open issues against current and previous versions of
Guideline 3.1 ("meaning").  The summary below lists issues that I think
should be easy to close under the heading "low-hanging fruit." It lists
those that will be more difficult under "Harder stuff." Finally, the
individual issues are itemized in the table of issues at the bottom of
the page.
Please note that my proposal for Guideline 3.1, if adopted, would allow
us to close at least 25 issues, and possibly more. That proposal will be
submitted as a separate document, together with some supporting
material.

Low-hanging fruit:
Issues that have already been resolved for various reasons and can be
closed (4): 
172, 1010, 1228 (Issue summary), 1424

Accept: Good easy changes (13):
784, 813, 814, 959, 1146, 1403, 1405, 1406, 1407, 1431, 1435, 1448, 1460
Issues not related to 3.1 but may be resolved by other proposals (2):
854, 1458 (Note: both of these actually relate to Guideline 3.2 and may
be resolved by the changes proposed by Mike, Michael, John, and Gregg on
03-28-2005)
 Harder stuff
Issues that could be closed by adopting JS proposal for Guideline 3.1
(25):
330, 495, 701, 809, 810, 811, 812, 950, 953, 954, 956, 957, 958, 1009,
1011,  1099,  1149, 1150, 1162,  1217, 1352, 1399, 1400,  1401, 1404,
1447
