Re: Please review: syntactic sugar and polishing (ISSUE-54, ISSUE-56, ISSUE-59, ISSUE-60)


In terms of process, the editors are not obliged to provide an editor's draft at all, nor is there any formal process for approving changes. The responsibility of the editors is simply to ensure that WG decisions are correctly reflected in the document. We would never get anything done if we waited for WG approval before every little change.

As I said, last week's batch of changes is the final one as far as I am concerned. I plan to make further changes only in response to WG decisions and reviewer comments.

The editor's draft is under version control and the four issues are marked PENDING REVIEW. There is a paper trail for what has changed and what needs review.

Then after the working group accepted a proposal for an item the spec would be changed. I checked the minutes of the recent meeting and tracker and I don't see a record of these changes being approved by the working group. It seems to me that these changes should be rolled back until they are accepted by the working group. Or please, feel free to correct my understanding of how the process is supposed to work.
