No, as far as I know, Greg's objection is still outstanding;
it was acknowledged in the 5 May announcement.

I'm not sure what you mean by "the chair would apparently have acted
up it"; the only action required by chairs is to report outstanding
dissent when we ask The Director/Membership for a status beyond WD.

"When the Chair believes that the Group has duly considered the
legitimate concerns of dissenters as far as is possible and reasonable,
the group SHOULD move on. ...

A record of each Formal Objection MUST be publicly available. A Call for
Review (of a document) to the Advisory Committee MUST identify any
Formal Objections."
