No problem, I was just wondering what was going on :-)

At this point I can only point back to the mailing list archives. Some issues have been tracked in the issue tracker as well, but I'm not sure which issues you are referring to here.

When we're going to Last Call we'll make sure to make a Disposition of Comments of course, but we are not there yet.

Well, at the moment it is still missing a model appropriate for redirects, but for the rest of the model the WG should be perfectly capable of giving answers to questions. (I think part of the problem may have been that the first point in your email did not go into sufficient detail for us to provide a satisfactory answer.)

No problem, thanks for the follow-up.

Kind regards,
