Hi All,

One of the topics discussed this week was to designate a "Test Spec 
Editor(s)" for each of our specs.

One reason to identify Test Spec Editors is to acknowledge that some 
Spec Editors don't have the cycles to lead their spec's testing effort 
and another is to try to prevent the proverbial "fox guarding the 
chicken coop" problem i.e. it may be better/preferred for someone other 
than the Spec Editor to lead the testing of their spec.

If you have any comments, please send them by November 11. In the 
absence of strong negative feedback, I propose we introduce this role 
and I will separately issue some type of Call for Test Spec Editors for 
our specs.

(BTW, the title of "Test Spec Editor" is a bit of a straw-man, so 
proposals for other titles are also welcome.)

-Thanks, AB
