The point is to capture specific issues rather than have a "discussion" - a discussion where nothing is recorded on the wiki is nearly worthless and may as well have not happened. 

If it doesn't get captured on a discoverable URL, it might as well not exist (and no, email archives are NOT discoverable).

I don't remember anyone asking for anything like itemscope in microformats.

This list or IRC (preferably) is a good place to start with questions, but if there is an answer it should be captured by the author in an FAQ either specific to a microformat *-faq page, or in general on:


If there is a specific known issue to report for a specific microformat, add it to the *-issues page for that microformat.

If there is a specific known issue that applies to several microformats (eg class microformats) add it to:


The goal is to *minimize* thrash / going in circles on email (a common problem in standards related communities), and instead to capture and grow our collective knowledge and understanding on the wiki.

If not, why not?  Microformats.org is a wiki first, and the mailing lists and IRC just facilitate the wiki.  IMHO, if it's not documented on the wiki, then it's just a discussion.

Well, "just a discussion" wouldn't be a bad start. Or do you suggest that I open a wiki page on my question?
