I have no problem with us doing as long as we add a comment to each of the former 19 Bugzilla bugs pointing forward to the appropriate GitHub issue.   I suggest you go ahead and do this ASAP.

>2. Is it possible to update the w3c bug tracker to indicate that new MSE bugs or activity on existing w3c MSE spec bugs should occur on github's issue tracker?

I am not sure how to do this.

W3C does not normally change even the Status section of published documents.  And for older documents we would NOT want to get rid of the pointer to the Bugzilla component since historically it is the right pointer.

I would recommend that the best way to make sure that people are looking at a TR page specification with the correct Status information is to get going on turning on automatic publication of Editor’s draft for MSE as we have for EME.  I believe Jerry has an action to look into that.

Subject: Proposal: use only github for new MSE spec bugs

At the moment, we are using both w3c and github to track open MSE spec bugs.
At the recent FOMS 2015 & Demuxed 2015 conferences, we heard praise from other attendees of the move by EME to primarily using github's issue tracker.
In light of EME's move to gh for new issue tracking, external appeals of similar for MSE, and to consolidate tracking of all new MSE spec bugs, I propose that we move to using solely github for tracking newly opened MSE spec bugs.

Before moving forward, I would like to understand better:
1. Would it make sense to make placeholder github issues for existing, open, w3c MSE bugs, and restrict all MSE spec bug activity to github issues?
2. Is it possible to update the w3c bug tracker to indicate that new MSE bugs or activity on existing w3c MSE spec bugs should occur on github's issue tracker?
3. Which versions of the MSE spec would need updating to reference using github as the primary issue tracker for spec bugs (just the current editor's draft, or some retro-active editing of earlier published snapshots of the spec too?)

Thanks,
Matt
