I propose the following:


There are two methods of tracking tasks to be performed by the
committee. The first is action items, the second is Bugzilla issues.
Each has their uses. 


Bugzilla is a tracking system that is designed to manage workflows that
may involve several people. The flow proceeds from issue identification
to resolution. It is designed for managing granular development tasks.
The action item system, on the other hand, is designed to record action
items in the course of a meeting quickly and easily, but it is not
particularly well suited to more than casual management of items.


We want to use Bugzilla for tracking all editorial activity and avoid
entering the same information into both systems. Therefore, all specific
actions directed toward the editors should be entered directly into
Bugzilla, even if the actions arise during an f2f or teleconference
meeting. Action items that arise during meetings should be entered by
the scribe as a regular action item.


Action items are only generated during meetings. Bugzilla issues can be
opened any time. Most Bugzilla issues will be editorial issues, but they
might be on other subjects.


Regards, Marv
