No. I disagree because I think https://github.com/w3c/w3process/issues/223 should
also be addressed for Process 2019.

I otherwise find this update to be an improvement and approve the changes.

Yes. +1 to all of these. I'm also OK with leaving out the addition to which Wendy objects,
although I'd prefer if she were able to more clearly explain what she's objecting to
so that the editors can maybe fix it more specifically. :)


Minor comment on the diff (which is overall an improvement for sure):

“Please note that <del>publishing</del> <ins>Publishing a Working Draft</ins>
as used in this document refers to producing a version which is listed as a
W3C Technical Report on its Technical Reports page https://www.w3.org/TR .”

I think this change is a mistake, as we use publishing to refer to Notes and
Recommendations and Candidate Recommendations as well...
