One of the problems with using Github for issue tracking is that it's proven *too* easy to comment upon an issue -- easier than taking the discussion to the mailing list, where it should be.

We've tried to address this in the past by asking people to move discussions to the list as they became substantial, but that doesn't appear to be working.

So, from now onwards, a few rules:

* Discussion on issues that are NOT tagged "editorial" will not be tolerated. This will be strictly enforced. If you see such discussion, please firmly ask for it to be moved to the mailing list. The only exception is for the editors to track the state of the issue's incorporation.

* Discussion on issues that are tagged "editorial" is allowed, but if it becomes substantial (i.e., more than editorial), must be moved to the list.

* When a non-editorial issue is discussed on-list, the Subject should indicate the issue number; e.g.,

  Subject: [#999] How Useless is the Foo Frame?

If you're starting such a discussion, it's friendly to provide a link to the issue in the message body.

I've updated the repository READMEs (since we now have two; one for HTTP2, one for compression) to reflect this.
