Phil,

While working on the request to move to CR, I wanted to
quote how many issues we have solved. I went to [1] and
realized that this page is hard to consult. If I want
to know if a given issue was solved, I've to follow a
link and parse thru a mail. If I want to know how many
issues were sent, open, or close at one time, I've
to count them by hand.

Sometimes there are comments in red that say "Fixed" 
and sometimes not (eg #305, #304, #307). When a given issue 
is not closed, it's moved out, like in issue #312.

An issue tracking page I really like is the DOM one [2].
PLH uses an XML file and a script to produce the page.
What's really nice IMO is that it gives a good view of the
status of each issue and the answer to each issue. I can 
look at how PLH's system works now and install it for us.

In all cases, I think that it would be useful to break the
grouping of issues in a single table cell and use rather
one row per issue.
