Thanks. I reread the thread, and while the idea of having a way for a WG 
chair to use the datatracker to set this relationship came up early, it 
wasn't what I talked about making a ticket for on the thread. Rather, it 
was about replaces and replaced by showing up in a similar place (which 
has been addressed <>).

In any case, I'll go add a ticket now so we can work on making capturing 
replaces information easier for the chairs.

Let me know if I've missed something.
