WKD is a useful spec, and an increasingly important part of the OpenPGP

If we want general e-mail discussion about WKD concerns, i'd suggest
using the openpgp at ietf.org mailing list, as it will reach implementers
of more WKD clients than just gnupg-users.

That said, e-mail discussion is not the same as a tracker that allows us
to keep a list of currently-known issues and concerns.

If https://dev.gnupg.org/ is not appropriate for that sort of issue
tracking, perhaps we could set up an issue tracker on gitlab associated
with the WKD spec?  I'd be happy to set up such a tracker at (say)
https://gitlab.com/openpgp-wg/web-key-directory/issues if folks are OK
with it.

Werner, does that sound OK to you?

As usual for any IETF-related interoperability discussion, i'd expect
any major issues to *also* go to the mailing list for visibility and
robust archiving, but i think that having an actively-maintained,
publicly-accessible issue tracker related to this important work would
be concretely useful.
