Subject: RE: [chairs] A question for the Chairs

Most TCs maintain one or more issues lists on various aspects of their work.
I don't see any real benefit to centralizing them, especially since they may
go in and out of existence according to the needs of the TC.

However, your question does raise an important unresolved issue. What
happens after a TC goes out of existence? There is a considerable body of
opinion that holds that TCs should do their work and go away and not become
permanent, self perpetuating bodies. However, after a TC shuts down, what
happens to questions, comments, bug reports, errata, documents, archives,
identifiers, etc.?
