Subject: Comments and feature requests

Dear TC members,

below Rob and Patrick have made some suggestions how we could create a 
process for the comment handling. I personally like these ideas, and I 
think we should establish such a process. However, if we establish this 
process, we need someone who keeps track of comments, and the comment 
registry. Is someone of you interested in taking over this task, or 
volunteers to do so?

We further may require some lightweight process for feature requests 
that we get as comments. I could imagine that the one who keeps track of 
the comments alerts the TC of new requests, and asks for a volunteer who
may process the request within the TC. The task of this person would be 
to introduce the request to the TC so that the TC can accept or decline 
it, and, in case the request gets accepted, to advance the proposal to a 
state where the TC can vote on it. Obviously, there could be different 
volunteers for different proposals.

Best regards

Hmmm, well, if we want to capture all comments I assume we could work
out some way to extract them from email. The basic information, date,
sender (for a response), subject line, columns for who responded,
resolution, resolution date.

Does that sound simple enough?

Sounds good to me. As ODF matures we are going to be getting comments
and having a process in place will make it easier to track comments,
etc. as well as for people who have made comments to follow the
resolution of their comments.
