I don't know that there can be any hard-and-fast policy on this, but as
a rule of thumb I'd say that the list is a better place for discussions
that might require a lot of back and forth and decision-making, while
the tracker is the appropriate place to record opinions, positions and
decisions for posterity, especially if such would help (a) whoever needs
to implement the decisions recorded in the ticket, and (b) anyone
revisiting this decision later trying to retrace the thinking.
So, to use the subst tickets as an example, we should note there that
Council approves the decisions of tickets 2. and 3. (he says, making a
big assumption!), and maybe only note on ticket 1. that we're surveying
community (with a link to the thread on TEI-L), and letter a note of the
outcome of this and the resultant decision.
Note also, however, that anyone not on Council will express their
opinions and arguments in Sourceforge (or perhaps TEI-L?), not this list.
Does that help?
