Subject: EDITORIAL: Copyediting the specs

Today I'm going to start doing a (long-delayed) copyediting pass on all 
the specs.  Just to let you all know how I'm going to proceed, I will 
send a note to the editors indicating which spec I'm working on.  I will 
remand the result back to the editors in each case, so that they can 
decide whether the changes are substantial enough to warrant publication 
by themselves (vs. continuing to make their own edits on top and then 
publishing).  While it's possible to merge changes made by multiple 
people, in my experience this can get messy when word-processing style 
changes are involved, so I'd like to avoid this if I can.

(Scott: This morning I'm starting on core-15, dated 28 Jun 2004, and the 
two corresponding schema modules.  I plan to finish these by tomorrow 
noon ET.)

For the last-call working drafts, I won't be filling in the 
Acknowledgments section in the back; I will do this for the Committee 
Draft versions, however.  If anyone thinks they should be added to the 
list of editors on a spec (the criterion we've been using is whether you 
physically edited the file) or the list of contributors (the criterion 
is that you contributed either some chunks of text or thorough 
comments), please let me know and I'll make this part of my cleanup.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know.  And again, 
let me put in my plea for you to review the V2.0 document deliverables 
diagram that I just uploaded, and weigh in with your comments:
