     Our tech staff is working in real time to fix the document tree 
updates, with diligent hounding from your TC's staff contact Mary McRae 
who, essentially, took over my position when I took Karl 
Best's.  Necessarily we do this, and anything like it, within the 
consortium's policy constraints, which include transparency, scalability, 
platform-neutrality, and assurance of archival persistence.
     DocBook, as one of our more mature efforts, puts pressure on us to get 
these functionalities right, both due to its level of mature deployment, 
and its legacy configuration.  That pressure is healthy, and we hope to be 
responding to it much more robustly, shortly.  My apologies to the TC for 
our not having yet fully achieved that.
    Regards  JBC
