Subject: RE: [office] Using JIRA

The single best thing would be to scrap the comment list altogether and 
allow the public to create new issues, and comment on existing issues 
directly into JIRA, subscribe to RSS feeds, get email notifications, etc.

But this is not a decision the TC can make.  The comment list is 
intertwined into OASIS IPR rules and the conformation email when 
subscribing to that list is key for proving that the poster agreed to the 
Feedback Licence.  That said, it doesn't look that there is a particularly 
impossible technical problem to solve here.   It should work.   But we 
need to walk before we can run.  Right now we JIRA is being rolled out 
slowly to a few TC's like ours.  Let's develop some best practices for how 
we use it for our tasks, note what works and what doesn't, and then make a 
case for OASIS switching on public access.  It won't happen overnight, but 
change happens.  Heck, just a couple of years ago, OASIS had no wikis, no 
subversion, not JIRA, no webinars, etc.  And look at us now.
