Issues added at least 7 (calendar) days before a TC meeting will be reviewed before the next meeting, i.e. one of the following things will happen:
- If a resolution can already be reached (e.g. it’s just fixing a “bug”, etc.), it will be done in mail before the next meeting.
- If anyone disagrees with the resolution, we can discuss it at the next meeting.
- If the proposal is substantive (ie, not a typo) it should be discussed at the next meeting. If there is any question on the substantive nature of an issue, it should be treated as substantive.
- If further clarification/discussion is needed, it will either be done in mail before the next meeting.
- If no consensus is reached on the list before the next meeting, the issue will be added to the agenda for the next meeting.
- Proposer: It is the proposers responsibility to make sure his or her proposal is discussed, received adequate reviews, and voted on at the TC meeting.

- Proposal: This describes the proposed resolution of the issue. This field will be kept up to date based on the comments and will be updated by either the reporter or by the owner of the component.
- Resolution: This describes the resolution of the issue when it is closed. This is edited by the owner of the component. If the resolution field contains a resolution, the Fixed Version must specify which version will contain this resolution.
- Issues should address a single item that can be resolved
- Issues that contain more than one item will be updated to reflect a single item
