That was alot.  I am working with the sysadmin team to create a new 
list. for this kind of stuff.

The default is P5, Unconfirmed for all new bugs and enhancements.  It is 
up to the module owner(s) - that's you - to then figure out if they are 
real (changed from unconfirmed to new) and what priority they should be 
fixed (move up from P5 to P1 or whatever in between).

I fixed this, just now.

That is fine.  It is close enough.

Great, thanks Neven.  Question:  I did not look, but did you get 
everything from the TODO and BUGS files in the 1.1.7 source tarball?

Now that you can change the status and such on a bug, would you mind 
going through them and changing their status (state) to something 
appropriate (like new?), if they have been confirmed by you ro someone 
else.  I see that you set the severity to either normal or enhancement. 
  Do you see any bugs (errors) as a different severity? If so, would you 
please change those?  I also see that you have set three bugs as P1 
(604, 605, 606).  The way we have been handling priorities with the book 
is explained on the wiki at:


I was thinking that it might be a good idea to try and do the same fro 
nALFS to help avoid confusion across projects.

I was also thinking of doing a roadmap like we have for the book.  Do 
have an idea of what you want to do in the area?  Do you want to only do 
updates to 1.1.x or move to a 1.2.x or something version for new stuff? 
  What would be in those versions?  Thoughts?

I am in process to get the code in CVS for co.  Hope to have that done 
today sometime. Depends on my day-job work load.
