Quick overview of the process which is described here:


Start with a bug, as you have done:


Bugs will get RESOLVED.  At the point the bugs are resolved, you have 
essentially two options: REOPEN the bug with new information if you want 
the editor to reconsider the resolution based on new information.  Or 
you can disagree with the resolution by marking the bug as a 
TrackerIssue, at which point it an issue will be opened, and Change 
Proposals will be solicited.  Please do not simultaneously REOPEN a bug 
and pursue it as an issue.  Also don't be surprised if a bug goes 30 
days or more before being addressed particularly as the priority at the 
moment is seeing that pre-LC issues are resolved.

If/when an issue is raised, you can create a change proposal per:


After we give people time to evaluate your proposal, we will call for 
Alternate or Counter proposals.  Ultimately, this can lead to a survey 
and a decision.
