Re: director's call outcome - republish as CR


so it is back to pre-CR? After the CR is before the CR?

Perhaps this is an opportunity to add some new minor function/syntax 
extensions to 3.1 ?

If there are no plans for 3.2 it is the last chance.

If you work quick, you can put the extension in before the 13th!
Otherwise the syntax looks outdated before it is published :(
