[CF-metadata] Discussion of technical CF issues as GitHub issues?

Dear All,


I can see the sense for the technical issues, but for Standard Name proposal discussions I would prefer to keep to the current system of e-mail plus the CEDA thread-tracking system unless Alison would like to see that replaced by GitHub. Having e-mail thread 'clarification' split across two systems is likely to cause more confusion than it solves.


Cheers, Roy.


Please note that I partially retired on 01/11/2015. I am now only working 7.5 hours a week and can only guarantee e-mail response on Wednesdays, my day in the office. All vocabulary queries should be sent to enquiries at bodc.ac.uk. Please also use this e-mail if your requirement is urgent.

I support this change.  I struggle with email for the reasons Rich listed.
