Issue tracking tool

what protocol do you want to use when participants want to raise issues to 
be tracked?

should we send a message to the mailing list with "NEW ISSUE:" in the 
subject and have the chairs/editors enter the ticket, should we log in as 
"ietf" on the tracker and create it ourselves, should we send mail to the 
tracker to create tickets, should we ask the maintainers for a login to 
create tickets, or shold we do something different?

Any of the above (and probably a dozen other ways) would work for me - but 
I want this to be as simple as possible for you - your call!
