Here is the promised set of instructions on using our public comment
tracker.

I enter items from the public comment list into the tracker.

Look for open comments in our comment tracker at
http://www.w3.org/2006/02/lc-comments-tracker/35422/. Pick the "comments"
link for the 11 December 2008 Guidelines or the 14 October 2010
Understanding or Techniques documents. These are the bottom three in the
list of six. Be careful to click on the comments link, rather than the
document link, since the document link just takes you to the document. You
can always get back to this page by clicking the "Other specs in this tool"
link from the "Nearby" section of the navigation panel on the right.

On the comments page, set Status to Open and click Filter. This will show
you the public comments for which we do not have a proposal. Add the
proposed resolution to the Resolution box, and any addition comments for the
WG in the WG Notes. If there is already a thread on this comment, the
contents of the message will go into the WG Notes field. Optionally, set
Assigned To to your name, so we know who proposed the resolution. Either
change the status to Proposal, or click the Submit as Proposal button at the
bottom of the tracker entry.

I use the Proposal status as a sign that the item should be added to a
survey for the working group. It is helpful if you alert me when there is a
tracker item ready for survey, but as long as you set the status, I should
be able to find them anyway.

After the WG has approved a response, I will post it to the public comments
list.

Thanks, Loretta
