I've pushed 5 isolated commits that make the draft text consistent in numbering, capitalization and names. Here come my (uncommitted) comments on the text: > Background/Rationale (Constitution 6.1.5): > > 1.

Ditto. Did you intend to have these two paragraphs part of the actual decision, or not? > Advice (Constitution 6.1.5): > > 1. The Technical Committee agrees that Christian has the power to > implement his proposal and encourages him to do so. I'd replace "agrees" with "acknowledges", but beware of my en_CH ! > 2.

Although I don't disagree with the paragraph, I'm not overly comfortable with formalizing our hopes in a resolution. I'd rather drop the complete paragraph from the actual decision, eventually moving it to a non-formal part (either pre- or post- decision). > 4. We thank Manuel for bringing this matter to our attention and > apologize for our delay in resolving this matter. Good. As you probably noticed from my comments above, I'd rather have a longer "background" part and a small, but straight-to-the-point formal resolution text. Opinions? Cheers, OdyX
