Thanks anyway, however we do not need that. I wonder if it is
even appropriate. Many people make contributions in varied ways.
Where is the acknlowdgement line drawn?

Good idea - i considered BugZilla but rejected it. I think CVS
is appropriate. We actually need more than just to record the
URL for the LinkAlarm report.

We also need to streamline the effort of repairing the breaks.
I propose a simple text table, based on the summary that is
provided by LinkAlarm. In this way, all of cocoon-dev can
patch code and docs to their heart's content, and follow up
with a patch to the "status" column of the text table.

I have added two text files to my working directory ...

- shows the report URL and explains the format of the following file

- copied the tab-delimited text file from LinkAlarm 
- added a left-hand column for "status"
- added a right-hand column for "comment"
- culled a stack of obviously similar messages
- recorded the status for fixes that Carsten has already done
- after each run following a Release, this file would get replaced 

Started with the following status codes ...
 - ... not yet addressed
 F ... fixed
 ? ... has some issue (see the "comment" field)
 [1-3] ... external problem link still broken for n runs (e.g. livesites)

If there are no negative comments, then i will go ahead.
