Please add the following new definitions
Issue Tracker: A mechanism to allow issues (problems, tasks, comments, or requests for change) to be recorded and tracked by priority, status, owner, or other criteria. The Issue Tracker should permit issues to be identified by states such as open, resolved, and closed and should support the assignment of resolution types such as deferred (postponed to a follow-on release,) fixed (implemented,) challenged (no satisfactory resolution,) and rejected (deemed inappropriate or out of scope.)
Issue: an explicit reference to an item defined in an Issue Tracker.
Issue List: A list of Issues generated from an Issue Tracker, identifying the disposition of each.
Please replace the contents of section 1.1.2 ISSUE TRACKING with the following
Issues must be tracked through a publicly readable Issue Tracker. The Expert Group may choose to use a publicly writable Issue Tracker, thereby permitting the public to log issues directly, or alternatively to identify formal comments in some other manner and to enter them into the Issue Tracker on behalf of the submitter. Whenever a Spec Lead or a Maintenance Lead submits materials to the PMO for review or ballot they must also provide an Issue List indicating the disposition of all of the Issues that have been logged against the JSR. In order to enable EC members to judge whether Issues have been adequately addressed the Issue List must make a clear distinction between Issues that are still open, those that have been resolved, and those that are closed, and must indicate the reason for any change of state.
The PMO will publish the Issue List or a pointer to it together with the other materials.
EC members should review the supplied Issue list and take it into consideration when casting their ballot. If they have any reservations or concerns about a 'yes' vote, or if they wish to vote 'no,' they should accompany their ballot with comments which reference one or more Issues (perhaps logged by them) that they would like to see addressed in the future. EC members should vote 'no' if they believe that the Spec Lead or Maintenance Lead has not adequately addressed all Issues including those that have been rejected or otherwise closed by the Expert Group.
