RE: [PLS1.0] i18n comment: Point to IPA picker

Issue R103-15

Proposed Classification: Clarification / Typo / Editorial 

Resolution: Accepted (with modifications)

Dear Richard,

We double check with Ian Jacobs about the opportunity to add
a link in spec, see below:

Thank you for the summary info. I think I still prefer the indirection.
Here are some reasons why:

 a) Because a different WG is managing the referenced page, there is an
    increased likelihood that they will make changes to their page(s)
    without realizing the impact of referring pages (in this case,
    TR documents). It is also more difficult for the Voice WG to
    track changes made by other groups.

 b) In a year, there may be a tool far superior to picker, or picker
    may no longer work. Rather than have the TR specification refer
    to something out of date, the indirection allows the Voice WG
    to maintain (if it chooses) an up-to-date list of useful

Therefore, I still prefer the indirection, especially for an informative
reference. If the group feels very strongly that the direct reference
will be a significant improvement to the specification, then perhaps
including both links will be acceptable: "Try picker and <a>other
tools</a>." or something like that.

We will introduce a note about the presence of tools and invitation
to visit the VBWG page. In the VBWG page we will add the link to
the IPA Picker.

Please indicate whether you are satisfied with the VBWG's resolution,
whether you think there has been a misunderstanding, or whether you wish
to register an objection.
