Those are all in the CSS WG, and do seem unnaturally long. That's why I 
was asking about specifically lengthy cases: we need to make sure that 
we're solving the problem in such a way that it applies across the board.

I certainly agree, that's not the question. My interest is in knowing 
why some groups take so much longer than others.

Things like FPWD and LCWD need some minimal approval, but unless there's 
a problem it shouldn't be more than a few hours (ten years ago it would 
be weeks, but thankfully there have been some optimisations).

I'm not sure that we can shorten the delay to move to CR much (and 
likewise PR) since Director's calls require more scheduling. But I don't 
think that those are the big problems; we can get to them when we've 
made the commoner cases fast.
