QAWG --

The chairs/staff and editors have conferred about out plan to seek CR on 
all parts -- Intro, OpsGL, and SpecGL -- before Crete.  We are unanimous 
that it is unattainable.

Here is the proposed modification:

1.) Intro publish as "Note" henceforth (coordinated with the GL);
2.) OpsGL progress to CR before Crete;
3.) SpecGL progress to 2nd Last Call, hopefully before Crete;

About #1:  Intro has ZERO conformance requirements, hence CR makes little 
sense (nor ..PR..Rec).

About #3:  we think the magnitude of changes to SpecGL necessitates a 2nd 
LC (the changes between LC-CR are supposed to be small);

About #2:  this is our *goal*, and we think it is attainable if we keep the 
OpsGL changes "small-ish", and are able to close all issues by 
mid-May.  Both appear possible.  The risks are:

a.) we don't get the issue resolution done in time;
b.) the magnitude of the changes is too big;
c.) LH can't get the editing done.

In any variations of our plan, it is our goal to prevent OpsGL/SpecGL from 
spilling over and demanding much of our time at Crete.  We think this is 
achievable -- if we miss the schedules, then by Crete we should in any case 
be in phases of "procedure" (e.g., CR request telecon), and possibly some 
left-over spec editing.  Those should not need significant f2f time.

Comments?

Regards,
-Lofton.
