With regard to WCAG 2.0 Working Draft comments, on a related thread I had

A few more clarifications in response to the further questions & comments 
following that posting:
- Yes there is a database, called Bugzilla, of issues that have been raised.
- When the WCAG WG issues its next draft, it will respond to people who 
have previously sent comments, and yes those responses to commenters will 
indicate the location of the commenters' issues in the database.
- The database does include disposition of comments. As the WCAG WG has 
been working hard to prepare their next draft, the database may not be 
completely updated yet, so I suggest that it would be more productive to 
look through the database after the upcoming draft rather than at this moment.

I want to emphasize, again, that the comments that we receive on W3C/WAI 
Working Drafts are valuable contributions to the development of the 
documents, and that they all receive consideration.
