Correct, with the realization that the current draft might exist only on 
your hard drive at that time.

That's fine with me, but may be more work for you than necessary.  Do you 
think any TC member really will be reviewing editorial changes on a daily 
basis?  Maybe a weekly posting would be sufficient.  But I would recommend 
updating JIRA as soon as you make the change on your copy, while this act 
is fresh in your mind.  We'll need to accept that there will always be 
some delay between when an editorial change is made and when it is posted. 
 JIRA didn't make this happen.  It just makes it possible for us to 
observe this delay in detail.  But the delay was always acceptable before, 
or at least I did not hear any complaints.  So I assume this natural delay 
is still acceptable.

I'm thinking 'applied' means you or Michael has updated the text or schema 
and it will appear in the next uploaded version of the text.  When the CD 
is approved we can then mark the issue 'closed'.
