Hi John,

Thanks for your comprehensive reply.

In this case, no other bugs or issues would be closed as a side effect. In particular:

"the <track> @kind attribute should include the all of the identified accessibility content types"

 - This bug will remain open, and can be pursued individually, or assicuated with ISSUE 152.

"Need a means for navigating between related timed tracks of media elements"

 - This bug can be pursued individually, and escalated to its own issue.

Other existing or new bugs can continue to be processed as well.

All that would be closed is ISSUE-9 itself, since the more specific bugs and issues remove the need for this placeholder umbrella issue.

I hope this answers your questions.


P.S. bug 10693 is in the inconsistent state of being reopened and also marked TrackerIssue. I believe one of the following would be appropriate:

(1) Remove TrackerIssue, and leave the bug open until the editor resolves it again.
(2) Put the bug back in "resolved" state and mark as TrackerRequest, to raise a new issue specifically about navigation between related timed tracks.

Please let the chairs know which of these is intended, or make the change yourself.
