	Whether or not it changed the SC is a matter for debate; but
 it is undisputed that the policies of the project did change
 drastically due to that GR.  What would you suggest that paragraph

 change; and we need tgime to meet the changed release policy in view
 of the changes in the sc, which some hold to be merely editorial?
