RE: [w3c sml] Action 108 - tracking bugs

No semantic difference. It is there for consistency. And, also, when you
have the list sorted by keyword, it is easier to tell which bugs have
not been triaged (the ones with no keyword).

what is the semantic difference between keyword=resolved and
status=resolved for our bugs?

[w3c sml] Action 108 - tracking bugs


Please review the attached diagram. This is a proposal from the editors
to track the state of bugs. The ovals are actions performed by the WG
and the rectangles represent keywords we can use to track the bug
status. This proposal is a (very) simplified version of what the schema
group is doing. 

Keywords (they are lower case / camel case):

No keyword - the bug is new and ready for triage.

'needsAgreement' - the bug is being discussed or otherwise waiting on
some action and not yet ready for the editors.

'editorial' - the bug is ready for an editor to take it and perform the
required editorial action based on the resolution agreed upon by the WG.
Note that anyone entering a simple 'typo' bug should add this keyword
when they submit the bug so we don't spend time on triage for typos.

'needsReview' - the editorial change is complete but the editor would
like the WG to review the change. This state may be skipped. That is,
the editor may choose to move the bug directly to 'resolved' if she
feels that no review is necessary. 

'resolved' - the bug is resolved.

I will change the bugs we reviewed today to add the appropriate keywords
- assuming I don't get any major objections to this proposal.
