Subject: RE: Working errata status; call for errata editor; approved errata status

Hi Eve et al,

  I think I had to make a few tweaks to the cover page info before I
uploaded the document so you'll want to start with the version on docs.dot
rather than something that might be in Kavi or on your local desktop.
