I'll just mention that this was also my personal understanding after reading the intro web page for referring a matter to the tech-ctte [before I submitted the summary], based on the sentence "The committee is only empowered to make technical decisions" in the third bullet point after the numbered list. Empowered means having official authority. List item 5 states concerning an agreement or compromise that "If it happens, the committee need not make a formal decision", so it also doesn't /require/ the TC to make a decision on its own, assuming the solution seems acceptable to everyone including the TC. -- Chris -- Chris Knadle Chris.Knadle@coredump.us GPG Key: 4096R/0x1E759A726A9FDD74
