Subject Re: [RTC] ?? Review requested on intermediate patches for pluggable JACC

One thing that a number of the projects do is maintain a
STATUS file with open issues, and have it send to the
dev list once a week.

This has been particularly useful for tracking the status
of patches during RTC.  When someone puts up a patch for
review, it gets added to the STATUS file with a brief
description and a pointer to where the patch can be
obtained.  As people review it, they add their +1/-1
votes to the item.

This allows the whole project to see at any time what
patches are up for review, keeps the issues and opinions
together and unforgotten so the status doesn't need to
be culled from the mailing list, and so on.

It's also useful for CTR environments, although it's
easier to forget to keep it maintained.  In RTC it
tends to serve as *the* authoritative reference for
what's going on; if it isn't in the STATUS file, it
isn't happening. :-)

Here's an example:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/branches/1.3.x/STATUS

We *have* a STATUS file, which was last used during
incubation.  I propose we reactivate it for this purpise,
and I can add it to the job that already sends these out
for over a dozen other projects.

Thoughts?
