Hi Paul,

you wrote:
"We therefore ask for a revert of this change to be completed no later than
the end of day on Tuesday 8th of November.  If this revert is not complete
by that time, we will instruct W3C staff to make this change."

It is now the 9th of November and the editor has failed to make the
requested change. Can you please advise the working group when W3C staff
will make this change?

regards
