Subject: Re: changes before uploading

Hi Jeff,

I am copying the IF-SC with this so that they know that I've looked at 
this in depth and agree with all the changes you have made. The 
formatting and references were things I missed and the fine print 
details are as well. The footer and date properly reflects the date it 
was voted out of the IF SC. The details of the code examples are 
apparently artifacts from reformatting, and I agree with them. The 
marginal change in (4) is justified on the basis of having no change in 
the meaning of the text and getting the link on one line is worth the 

So please Accept all changes and upload the clean version to the TC 
documents page and also send a separate message announcing that you have 
uploaded even though Kavi sends out a notice. I don't know about 
everyone else, but I don't usually even open those notification 
messages. Please include the url link from the document so that people 
don't need to go look for it.

That last detail is the one thing that the Kavi notification does that I 
do pay attention to if I happen to be waiting for a document, but only 
if I'm actually waiting for it.
