Re: CfC: Close ISSUE-35 aria-processing (ends 2009-12-17)

Hi Maciej,

How can an issue be closed that has open actions bound to it?

Since you closed ISSUE-35 aria-processing [1] that Cynthia originally
raised, will new issue(s) be opened to track Steve's two open ARIA
actions? They are ACTION-158 [2] and ACTION-138 [3]. Both of them are
currently bound to ISSUE-35.


Best Regards,
