Ok, this is wise.

Actually, we (I'm the first) are in defect towards "The Apache Way" so 
to speak, because we don't actually have a STATUS document that tracks 
decisions.

Your comment brings this into top priority now, and this is what I've 
been thinking: to add an <issues> tag in status.xml, to track 
descisions, a <wishlist> section and a release notes section.

I volunteer to make a GUI editor for this, as I've done for the Gump 
descriptor, as soon as we agree on it, and add stylesheets to make these 
into separate RSS feeds and pages.
