Section 7 on the Process 2015 document has the definition of what a "W3C Decisions" is. These are the decisions that are AC Appealable. In that list, the phrase, "Call for Review of a Proposed Recommendation" occurs twice. The first of these occurrences links to section 6.5 Proposed Recommendation and the second links to section 6.7.2 Revising a Recommendation. So, the two occurances are not strictly redundant, but the double occurrence is confusing.

Previously, the second occurrence had been, "Call for Review of a Proposed Edited Recommendation". This was changed in the Process 2015 text of section 7 and in section 6.7.2 to be just a "Proposed Recommendation".

I would strongly suggest that we restore the "Proposed Edited Recommendation" variant and put in the approved text change for section 6.7.2 [1] that was accidentally omitted [2] from Process 2015.

[1] change "a." in https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-w3process/2015Apr/0114.html
[2] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-w3process/2015Jun/0000.html

In making the above comments, I do realize that removing "Proposed Edited Recommendation" was an effort to simplify the state diagram for documents on the REC track.
