I was just about to hit 'send' on the "WebCGM 2.0 Last Call Review 
Schedule" to Chairs and dependency WGs.  But then I'm thinking... should 
that (LCWD) follow the FPWD Transition Request, which is also Cc: to 
Chairs?  Or maybe, to preempt confusion, should I put a note in LCWD 
message (then send it) acknowledging the odd order of things when FPWD and 
LCWD coincide, and preview that FPWD Tr.Req. message will follow soon?  Or 
not worry about it at all?

Another question.  As of the Thursday telecon (LC Resolution), we should 
freeze the document completely?  Should I then edit the cover page for 23rd 
June publication date and put it in a dated sub-directory under ../drafts/..?

It is becoming clear.

Right, and thanks.  In 3 years as QAWG co-chair, Karl handled most of those 
details.  Since that was 2 years ago, I have (mercifully) forgotten a lot 
of it.
