At the moment, we have 25 issues ( and 11 PRs ( left on the CR milestone. If you have questions about the timeline of the CR milestone, please defer that to the chairs.

Congrats everyone on hitting a major milestone!

I think what you mean here is simply:
"close all issues marked for CR milestone"

As we discussed on the call yesterday, 13 of the 26 presently marked for CR are labeled as _technical_  and 16 as editorial.

Great, thanks.

via this mailing list so everyone knows what's going on.

PR #702 is ready-to-merge AFAIK, and has approvals from @jcjones and
@emlun. Other reviews of course welcome.

Other than perhaps including PR #688 if the IPR check is cleared (and
since it has been reviewed by five folks and has not since changed), I
hope that we _do not_ attempt to include any other changes in WD-07 at
this time -- hasty changes at deadline are often sloppy and error-prone
(witness my sloppiness with PR #702 yesterday, sigh).
