rel=issues is proposed method for linking from a document to a place where issues about the document are listed, recorded, and perhaps entered.
See rel-values-issues for issues about rel values themselves and the rel attribute in general.
In a document that has a specific issues list (e.g. bug database, wiki page of issues), the hyperlink from the document to the issues list should be marked up with the
- W3C spec which links to Tracker results or a bugzilla query of issues filed on the spec
- microformats specs which link to their *-issues pages
Browsers that detect a rel=issues hyperlink in a page can implement a UI for navigating from that page to the issues about it with a "View Issues" menu/command.
Additionally, if each of the issues on the issues list are marked up with what section they're about, a browser could overlay links to the issues on a document itself for each section.
