Please note that I have *not* asked the chairs to have any opinion about your bug tracker. 

The wording «people expressing their opinions in outside forums» is the relevant phrase to which my comment related. By «people» I suppose you did not only have yourself in mind. And by «forums» you probably did not only think about your bug tracker.         

But in order to relate Maciej's subject to my subject: the praxis of feature removal as soon as someone has expressed the «opinion» that «HTML5 has dropped the feature», does not to amount consenus building in my book.
