Re: Logistics of Open Issues


First, a plea to everyone to please, please, please remember to use the
issue and action numbers in the subject line of replies to commenters
(especially the issue number).  I've had to dig through the list to find
replies for several comments, and put them into Tracker manually.  We
need to keep close track of how we are responding to issues.  Remember,
I know where you live... (well, at least what country you live in.)

Similarly, when closing issues, please explain briefly what the
resolution was, and how the responder replied (satisfied or not).  We
will need this paper trail when attempting to make our transition.
Don't close issues via the IRC interface, because we lose all context
there.  I am happy to handle closing all issues in the manner we need,
so when in doubt, just leave the issue open (or move it to
pending-review, if it's not already there).

Ok, now an update on where we stand.  I bugged several people for
responses, and more are pending.  I worked through the issues pending
review, and we now have only 13 left waiting on responses:

Mohamed ZERGAOUI/CSS (will be at TPAC)
 1 issue (ISSUE-2056)
 Declined to make requested changes (can't link to spec not in PR/Rec)

fantasai/CSS (will be at TPAC)
 2 issues (ISSUE-2057, ISSUE-2058)
 Requested changes made

Chris Peto (will not be at TPAC)
 1 issue (ISSUE-2068)
 Declined to make requested changes, but offered workaround

Manu Sporny/RDFa (may be at TPAC)
 3 issues (ISSUE-2099, ISSUE-2100, ISSUE-2101)
 Partial agreement, most requested changes made

Richard Ishida/I18N (will be at TPAC)
 3 issues (ISSUE-2102, ISSUE-2106, ISSUE-2111)
 Requested changes made, may need more discussion

Cyril Concolato (will be at TPAC)
 2 issues (ISSUE-2126, ISSUE-2142)
 Requested changes made

I also had to move one issue back to Open, ISSUE-2062 (foreignObject
refs).  It seems to be completed, but needs a coherent response to Dr.
Olaf, and to wait on his reply.

So, we now have 26 open and raised issues.

Go Team S-Venture-G!
