    This CfC is the result of the Call for Review issued by both AG and APA
    on 20 March last. It is being promolgated at this time because no
    substantive issues were raised as a result of that review announcement.
    The APA review request is archived at:

    Editorial issues communicated in response to this Call for Review will
    be addressed in a later editorial pass.
    *       ACTION TO TAKE
    This CfC is now open for objection, comment, as well as statements of
    support via email. Silence will be interpreted as support, though
    messages of support are certainly welcome.
    If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this
    proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later
    than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time, Tuesday 18 April.
