I'd like to get some feedback re how the group will track issues. A meta 
issue here is what we mean by "issue"and to a large extent, it depends 
on the context. In some cases, Issues are relatively broad e.g. "should 
spec A implement feature X" and in other cases an Issue could be much 
more specific e.g. "should parameter foo be a long or an unsigned long".

If we want to try to track issues, I think the main options are:  a) 
Issues are bugs so just use Bugzilla(or whatever bug db we decide to 
use); b) use Tracker (as is done by WebEventsWG); c) Issues should be 
explicitly identified in the appropriate spec.

My preference is to not be overly prescriptive/formal re how we handle 
and track issues but that we do indeed try to track them. As such, I am 
mostly indifferent on what we do, although I tend to favor using both b) 
and c) above, depending on the nature/context of the Issue. OTOH, I 
think a), possibly in combination c) is fine too.

Comments, preferences?

If no one feels strongly here, I will start a CfC to use b) and c) for 
Issue tracking (as is done by WebEventsWG).

-Thanks, AB
