Graham,

I understand that we can always vote. But I would prefer to have a
conversation and identify particular issues and ways to resolve those
issues, so that we can proceed in a consensus bases fashion. That's
why some sort of prioritization from your side is helpful. If we can
address your concerns, in particular, if the changes are
straightforward we should try to do that. This is less about
addressing issues (which will happen) but what is the best time for
that occur.

Also, will you be on the call Thursday?

regards
Paul
