Today in SocialCG called we discussed the ActivityPub Issue Tracker, which is this GitHub URL: https://github.com/w3c/activitypub/issues
It was mentioned that many of these issues are sort of just conversation-starters, e.g. “What do you think of…?”, and not really things that the group could clearly vote to take action on and resolve, close, etc.
We also discussed it would be nice to generally have an attitude toward actionable issues that we try to reach the equivalent if ‘issue zero’ and aspire to address all issues ASAP.
In pursuit of that, I start this topic. I encourage anyone to help build a list of GitHub issues in the tracker that might be best moved to this forum.
If there are some obvious ones, I think we should group them into a single proposal to close the GitHub issue and encourage the author (or a volunteer who is interested) to re-open them as forum threads here.
A relevant metaconversation is: “What makes for an actionable issue?” I don’t think there’s a right answer to this. But I think the most ideal kind of group-actionable issue is a pull request that can be voted upon to merge, close, request changes to, or keep keep discussing about.
