I really appreciate the efforts of several people in picking out
issues and updating the tracker.
There are some procedural issues I'd like to clarify. Don't worry
much about "conforming" exactly to procedure, but I would like to
some suggestions to make the tracker as useful as possible.
(1) An issue should not be closed until you've confirmed that the
Sorry for bring so many inconvenience to you, I'll be very careful and

or twice, consider nominating yourself for XEmacs Reviewer. (No

What is a XEmacs Reviewer? What they did to help XEmacs' development?
(5) Keywords are important! Some keywords are workflow-related, the
"has X" and "needs X" keywords in particular. The "has X"
means that such an item has been contributed, typically by the
creator, and needs to be confirmed before committing the change. The
"needs X" keyword means that such an item must be developed and
committed to resolve the issue. The "has X" and "needs X" keywords
are *not* opposites. When a contributed X is verified and committed,
the "has X" keyword should be removed. Similarly, when an X is
developed and committed, the "needs X" keyword should be removed.
Other keywords refer to XEmacs behavior, and are helpful to users in
filtering out issues unrelated to their problem. At present, I've
created the following keywords for general areas of XEmacs behavior:
display, i18n, input/output, motion, performance, search, and
security. Feel free to add more if appropriate, but as mentioned I'd
like to keep the number small for now. Try to keep new keywords at a
pretty high level of generality.
Currently a majority of the keywords are tracker-related; I'm
about how to get them out of your face, but for now please bear with
Thanks for your clarification~~
