I'd like to spend some time reviewing the proposals and understanding the options we're being asked to vote on, but I do *not* want to waste time reviewing proposals that are still in flux. How do I know when I can do that?
I think the original point to this thread was to figure that out. My assumption is that if we don't change dates then all 801X PEPs will forcibly go into "final" status and not be updated short of spelling mistakes or clarifications that were simply overlooked -- i.e. no semantic changes -- on November 15.
Hmm, so voting opens immediately after the PEPs are finalised? No discussion/debate period before that? Maybe I misunderstood, I'd assumed that this would be more similar to an election process, with a period of canvassing support and/or debating the strengths and weaknesses of the proposals, leading up to a vote.
OK. I can't say I *like* that, but if that's what's happening then that probably explains some of my confusion. Paul
