 Response from the Working Group

The working group felt it was important to raise the visibility of all
failures.  In particular, authors need to be aware of general failures as
well as failures specific to the technology they are using. So all failures
are listed together.

However, we will consider including information that more clearly associates
failures with the technologies they relate to in future versions of the
Techniques document.

Could you let us know by Monday, December 8 whether you are satisfied with
our resolution? If that date is not possible, please reply to this message
indicating when you will be able to respond.

If we do not hear from you by Monday, December 8, we will assume that
you are satisfied with the responses to your comments.

Thanks again for the interest that you have taken in these guidelines.
