People have been referring to things requiring votes as
'RTCs'.

Everyone *please* stop using RTC in this manner.  RTC is a
development model; what it and CTR are concerned with are
patches.  Please call them patches.  Changes are patches;
RTC and CTR are how they get applied.  If you said something
about 'an RTC' outside Geronimo, no-one would have the least
idea what you were talking about.  This is *not* a place
where it's necessary for us to invent new nomenclature.

There has been some discussion about keeping status in
the wiki.  The wiki is a 'pull' mechanism; if you don't
actively go looking for it, you won't get it.  I have
updated the STATUS file in trunk from its incubation
content to something more current, and have set it up to
be mailed to the list every Wednesday night.  I suggest
filling things in there so all the various issues are
listed in a single places, along with who has voted on
patches, critical issues, etc.  Right now information is
scattered all over the place.

Take a look at http://tinyurl.com/hzwes (or at
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/branches/2.0.x/STATUS
if you prefer the full URL) to see how another project
uses the STATUS file as a central repository of such
info.

If the consensus is to not use the STATUS file, that's
cool.  But I decided that *doing* it was more productive
that just proposing to possibly set it up.
