We don't need tickets for edits to the document - tickets were the  
appropriate way to manage minor corrections to the document but don't  
help the process of developing a new or greatly revised chapter.  The  
RMA group has two proposals on its wiki, both of which are in the  
context of complete chapters.  A drawback to tickets was they made it  
possible to think that by reading the ticket, the issue was  
understood.  This caused several problems in the prior rounds, and  
would be more serious here.

So, no ticket is needed.  Following the written instructions, a zero  
(0) may be used.
