FWIW, before working on this, I think we need:
- a proposal and the implementation to fix 1058 (structure and numbering
inconsistent)
- at least the start of implementing our fix to 1144 (workflow and spec
spec mix up)

Well, I interpreted the "REMIND" state as meaning "we still need to get
back to the commenter"; I think the best we can do to help tracking
sub-states is using keywords; I have been using "needsAction" when an
issue resolution was pending an action item for someone, and
"needsReview" when an issue resolution was pending approval of a
proposed resolution. So we could add a new keyword, either
"needsImplementation" and change all the issues that haven't been
implemented yet, or "implemented" and change all the issues that have
been implemented. What do you think?

FWIW, I don't think the notion of umbrella specification ever really
solved the problem, since it was not used in any normative part of
SpecGL; in addition, I think our current requirement that any technical
report should have a conformance section solves this issue (although not
very elegantly).
