Apologies for the delay. I was out of town for a few days.
You make a good point. During the last cycle it was not possible to post comments
for review and response prior to the closing of the comment period, as virtually all of
the comments came in a couple of days before the comment period was due to end,
which in turn was a short time before the actual meeting. This time, however, I
have set the end of the comment period to end a week before the meeting, so we
should have more time to review the comments and propose resolutions.
Currently, the only dates are: closing of comment period on April 28th (i.e., no more
NEW comments will be accepted after that, only proposed resolutions to existing
comments); posting of comments to the web on the 29th; then about 1 week for the
proposed resolutions from the WG and editors; and finally the entire comment
database being finally frozen on May 4th in preparation for the meeting.
However, an intermediate date would be helpful in encouraging people to submit their
comments early so that others can review them and propose resolutions. Therefore,
here is a revised timeline:
- Comment period opened April 17th
- First round of comments to be submitted by April 23rd, to be posted on/before April 24th
- Comment period closes April 28th
- Full comment database to be posted on April 29th
- Final CRD with all responses received to date to be posted on May 4th
If less than 20 comments are received by April 23rd, then it makes very little sense to
have a first round posting (I may elect to simply mail the comments received to date,
if any, to the reflector). Therefore, get your comments in before April 23rd!
