I would like to have the checkoff process more an integral part of what
we're doing. I also want to make the information public, so that
everyone can see what's been checked off and what still needs to be
done. How about if we use Bugzilla the way it was designed, meaning that
once you have applied new changes to CVS, you change the state of the
bug to "resolved." Then, as items are proof read, I will change the 
state to "verified." This way we have a record within the tools we're 
already using of what has been and still needs to be done.

I think that makes for a cleaner and clearer process. It will also keep 
me from having to do the keeping track in a more manual, and possibly 
less accurate way. What do you think?
