1. We should require the format used by the Tcl TIPs. It'll make our lives easier.
We should use the TIP AutoGenerator (http://sourceforge.net/projects/tiprender/) that the Tcl Project uses. It making viewing, handling and overall working with TIPs faster, easier and more visible.
The TIP AutoGenerator is composed of a bunch of Tcl Scripts. We can modify that script for our needs to make our lives easier. For example, we can modify the script to automatically insert the TIP into bug-tracker once it has been approved. Here's the Tcl TIP Repository, handled by tiprender: http://www.tcl.tk/cgi-bin/tct/tip/1.html
A consequence of using the TIP AutoGenerator (tiprender) is that it won't make much sense to use Forums to keep track of TIPs because tip render needs to receive plain text e-mail. tiprender takes care of checking the TIP for appropriate format, and once it's correct it autonumbers it, formats it into several different outputs (including HTML, LaTeX, XML, etc.), displays follow-ups, checks the TIP into CVS, etc.
