Subject: Re: [ws-caf] issues tracking system

Great. My intention is to work out some categories and send something out by
the end of this week. We'll host it (and back everything up). We're going to
explore the email submission route (currently we use bugzilla via the web
front-end, but it does appear to have an email entry subsystem). I'll also
ensure that notification of submitted reports is sent to the group.

However, before it goes live I'll definitely send round a list of proposed
categories. Until then, anyone with issues can send them to me and I'll
archive them and submit them later.
