Thanks Peter.

I was thinking of bugzilla for both spec and test case issues only for simplicity. If you've got another tool already (or mostly) implemented, that's great.  

You may be right that MultiCol is small enough to discuss in email, but that could be true of a lot of coming test suites. I still think it's a best practice to use the tracking tool for all test suites so there is no confusion and no difficulty finding the open/resolved/closed issues. 

That said, not having the tool ready is certainly not blocking moving the test suite forward, I'd just like to be able to go to one place to see all the current issues without searching email archives.

While we agreed to start tracking spec issues in Bugzilla, we didn't agree to use it for tracking test issues.

I'm actually in the process of building a custom solution for tracking test case issues (and it will do a lot more besides), so I don't want to start tracking issues elsewhere and have to migrate data. I hope to have something online soon, but in the meanwhile I don't think the MultiCol test suite is so large that we can't track its issues over email and the wiki.

Unfortunately, I will not be at the F2F in Japan to discuss, but has there been any progress on this front? I suspect others will have some further comments or issues with these test cases as well as others moving forward, and keeping track in a database makes the most sense to me.
