Subject: Re: [tm-pubsubj-comment] New Deliverable 1 draft

Only "comments", not grumble. We are moving forward indeed :))

Good remark. Will add something here.

Ah. Good point. They are not new. But I wanted them to show off somehow.
Will figure how to make it.

You mean they are not correct as they are? Have to check the wording.

Shh ... they are (should be) really headings, right

Certainly. In fact I had made the second diagram first (section 2.3) with explanations.
Then I added that one, but explanations were forgotten.

So. Does that mean you would add/modify/delete something in that section?

OK. I know I tend to be verbose, so I tried to moderate myself. Maybe too much here.

Ohh, YES ... perseverare diabolicum ...
But this rule is one mystery of English to me. What I learnt is:
1. The article "a" becomes "an" when the name initial is a vowel
2. "u" is a vowel.
So ... where did I go wrong? Is that an exception?
