I'm thinking it is time for us to make sure we've done the work to get
the specification to PR.

I had a separate email discussion with Yves around certain points.

At the moment, it looks like we only have two problematic normative
statements, and I expect that we can get those wrapped up quickly.  Once
we've done that, what next?

The process is laid out fairly clearly at [4] & [5].  The primary
conclusion, after talking to Yves, is that we need implementations
claiming to pass test cases.

Based on where we're at, I think we need to:
 * Document "wide" review (Yves thinks we've satisfied this hurdle)
 * Show that two implementations have passed the test cases.  Yves gave
examples of this [2] & [3]
 * Edit specification for violation of publication rules ([1] & [Checker])
 * Create "diff" documents showing what has changed.
 * Write up a report about what has changed between CR and our latest draft.
 * Vote to advance....

As for passing the test cases, Yves passed along this interpretation:
"What is needed it the test cases, a report with implementations and
evidence that the tests have been passed by two implementations.

Note that the tests may lead to some new issues (or maybe not if things
were tested while creating the tests)."

And in conclusion, Yves said this:
""Get the WG to vote" should be done once the tests are ok.
So first, is tests, and report.
Then vote,
then list with all the issues and their status (closed or open (should
be closed), originator, resolution, did the originator agree with the
resolution (or not, or didn't answer).
then prepare diff doc, pubrules."

I'm currently planning that we'll take some time to discuss on
tomorrow's call.
