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

I think providing some standard ways to facilitate creating issues via something like Kavi could be good. 

Its been my experience with this that typically I see XML/XSL being used in many different bodies that seems to derive from a W3C format for issue tracking. But the knowledge of how to work with and extend this is ad-hoc and passed from editor to editor. I think providing an OASIS template for an XML/XSL issue list format and some supporting instructions for use would be valuable similar to the spectools. I would not want to see this option go away if a central mechanism via something like Kavi issue lists were deployed.

We have on our to-do list the creation of an issue tracking tool for the 
TCs to use. We've suggested to the Kavi folks the addition of this 
feature, and they are considering it as a major functionality 
enhancement for a future release. If they decide not to do this then 
OASIS IT staff may be able to do something.

No promises on timing, though.

In many cases, I see TC's keeping "issues" documents in the document repository, which seems suboptimal since the current issue list is only published when the issues list maintainer decides to upload the file.
