New issue on

GitHub project “AB”

@W3CAB issues ought to be public by default absent a specific reason to be kept private

on (ttk.me b/4vq1) using BBEdit

The W3C Advisory Board keeps track of some issues in a private repository in the W3C GitHub org: https://github.com/w3c/AB/issues and in my opinion the AB should move to tracking issues publicly by default instead.

This requires two things: 1. creating new AB issues in a public forum/repo by default, and 2. analyzing current open issues to see if they can be moved to being public issues.

I have created the public label in the existing repo to help with the latter, and am attempting to label this issue accordingly as well.

As background, I created the public W3C AB wiki page five years ago which has served the group and W3C community quite well in practice. I think the AB can similarly benefit from public issues discussion by default.
