Re: Splitting Checkpoints - from telecon 3 March

Yes, I recall the topic being discussed there.

My personal preference for faster cycling of the draft process is in part

Somehow or other we need to find a way of keeping track of these things -
not just in UA but in the various working groups. Memory is good, but not
very easily shared...
