They say "The public mailing list public-webappsec@w3.org is preferred for
discussion..." right? Not really a MUST, but more mandatory-sounding than
it should be... It's less true now than it was a year or two ago when I put

to extend it to include the GitHub bug tracker, since that's more or less
where we seem to have settled on tracking issues.
