FYI, I just added "[i18n-issue-NNN]" to the title of the five Github 
issues Ken created ([GH]) for the issues Addison submitted (and created 
the "I18N-WG" label for them).

I don't know if the GH repo can be configured such that all activity for 
just these issues can be automagically Cc'ed to www-international but I 
know Dom has done so related work so I will follow up with him separately.

The boiler plate asking for feedback via GH and the Status section 
asking for feedback via p-webapps is certainly suboptimal. AFAIK, 
PubRules mandates the comment list. If we can't get that restriction 
lifted, I recommend the relevant text in the SotD clearly state using GH 
for comments/bugs/issues is *strongly preferred* and the list should 
only be used as a `last resort`.

(FYI, all of WebApps' GH activity is mirrored to [p-w-gh], thus all I18n 
activity can be found in the archive, f.ex. via [i18n].)

-Thanks, ArtB
