Thanks for your comments.

To be more clear about your preference -- do you have specific  
requirements in mind for an additional editor, or will any other  
reasonably competent person not employed by the same company as Ian  
be sufficient?

I'd love to hear a report from the chairs to the Working Group on  
their editor recruiting efforts so far. Who has been asked? Have any  
of them expressed willingness or unwillingness to serve? I think the  
Working Group deserves to know, and it is inappropriate for the  
chairs to keep secrets from the group for an extended period.

Regards,
Maciej
