Somehow I dont think the IETF mandated
you remove a space or two from the biolerplate or from some random sentences
in the drafts.
Im not hand comparing the 140+ page
drafts to find content differences just because your tool mangles whitespace!
Im using diff and windiff (a GUI diff for those w/Windows) and relying
on them to do the right thing just like the WG relys on the editor to provide
drafts that do not contain undiscussed changes.

Actually its the graphical differences
that windiff uses in conjuction with displaying content. For those
of us w/Windows its a handy way to judge overall changes; the less color
you see, the less changes there were.
As I said before, diff (not some custom
tool) reported 707 differences and windiff shows it graphically (as well
as side by side but I didnt include that).

Umm, I just checked that bugzilla and
it doesnt have lots of comments or issues listed that were raised here
nor does it have several of the OOB typos/fixes I sent you over the past
year or so. I saw George Barnes postings (2) and a couple questions
by Satay (2) and some non-CAP related posts (Bugs 26-28).
I do not see any of the comments / issues
such as stored queries, scoping of searches, busytime searches, etc. that
were raised in the past few months.
In addition, discussion of issues is
done on the list and typically its the editors job to track raised issues
to ensure they get addressed; not the WG's job to use a tool like bugzilla
to report and track them. If you want to make use it to track issues,
great. But I thinks its unreasonable to expect those that raise issues
on the list to also have to put them into your bugzilla in order for them
to be addressed.
