Hi Prodders,

please see the message below for a change that concerns spec writing. 
Basically the <h2> that gives the status changes for FPWD and LC.

Note that if you're using ReSpec, you need not do anything as this 
change is already supported.

Hello Chairs,

W3C technical reports have a "status header" below the title. 
Traditionally we have used "Working Draft" for all types of
Working Drafts. Based on input from Robin Berjon and Doug Schepers, I am 
proposing the following change to pubrules [1]
regarding the status header:

  * FPWDs will say <h2>First Public Working Draft [date]</h2>
  * LCWDs will say <h2>Last Call Working Draft [date]</h2>
  * When both it will say: <h2>First Public and Last Call Working Draft 

Please let me know if you object to this change.

If there are no objections, I expect this calendar:

  * 19 March: I will announce change and 4-week grace period. During the 
grace period the Webmaster will accept old and new
  * 16 April: I will announce the change has been finalized. After this, 
the Webmaster will only accept the new form for new drafts.

The pubrules checker will accept both during the grace period. If you 
encounter any problems, please let us know. We won't announce the final 
adoption until we've fixed all reported bugs around this change.

Thank you,
