Hi Alastair, all,

Frankly, at this stage I'm wondering how useful an EOWG review will be. 
I personally can no longer commit to reviewing 17+ Understanding docs 
before the currently scheduled publication on 5th June. Especially now 
that you suggest that we should wait another 2 weeks before starting.

Here are my suggested options:

#1. Very light editorial review for high-priority issues. I'm not sure 
if that would catch anything that AGWG can't catch with their reviews.

#2. Slightly more in-depth review of a selected set of docs that AGWG 
identifies for us as high-priority (eg. for especially complex SCs).

#3. Move this project post-launch and do a more comprehensive approach 
(also in preparation of moving the docs out of the current TR format).

These options are not mutually exclusive, though we only have limited 
resources too. You need to let us know how we can best support you.
