Draft Decision Policy update

From: Sam Ruby <rubys@intertwingly.net>
Date: Tue, 14 Aug 2012 19:11:30 -0400
Message-ID: <502ADB22.5060309@intertwingly.net>
To: "public-html@w3.org WG" <public-html@w3.org>

Note that this is *DRAFT*. While most of the bugs addressed changes have 
been available for review since April with little feedback, the document 
which contains these changes has not been reviewed by W3C management, my 
co-chairs, or the editors.

Decision Policy v3 
<http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy-v3.html> has 
been updated to reflect the changed identified in the Stabilization plan 
<http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/html5-stabilization-plan.html#Q6>. 
Retroactive changes are fixed in place. New additions for LC2 are 
consolidated to a new section.

Specifics:

  *
