In the past have declined to grant extensions that are unbounded or triggered by some other action, rather than for a fixed amount of time. Though I have not conferred with my co-chairs, it is almost certain we will decline in this case as well.

If you'd like to volunteer to write change proposals or counter-proposals for one or more of these issues, then please specify which issues and state a a fixed future date by which they will be done.

The poll on ISSUE-66 is in progress, and while I can't promise a specific time frame for a decision, it's likely to be less than a month from today.
