This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to create such a list and for the Publications team to use it when these types of documents are published.

Hi Art,

Did someone actually say that during the course of these discussions? I may have missed that comment. 

What I do know is that the request happened just before TPAC, when the staff is very busy. Since TPAC
I have been working on this tool and getting feedback on this public list.

I note too that since Nigel's request, 7 LCWDs have been published and thus not announced. I can't tell from a first level scan of TR/tr-date-drafts/ if any FPWDs or PD2014 pre-CRs have been published since  his posting.

I can ask the Systems Team to add "First" to the status column.

Ok, I've split them.

I'm not sure I understand the parenthetical comment.

Fantasai argued against this. I propose we leave in one place for now and see how it evolves.
