I don't think I really need to check much:

* SO W 01 has been superceded

* SO W 02 provides rationale, not details, but that which it
  discusses is in P5.

* SO W 03 has been incorporated into P5

* The suggestions made in SO W 04 have not been incorporated into P5
  at all, and as far as I know no one except me (and perhaps David
  Durand and Lou Burnard) has even read this important document

* The meat of SO W 05 is advice and examples of linguistic corpora,
  which has not been folded into P5 at all, mostly because it needs
  some attention from someone with a stronger linguistic background
  than I

* SO W 06 is completely worked into P5 now

* SO W 07 is in the exact same position as Chris' other paper, SO W
  04, in that no one has provided feedback on it at all, and
  therefore I have made no attempt to put it into P5. The main
  difference is I don't think this one is a high priority. (I suspect
  there just aren't that many people encoding graphs at all, let
  alone with TEI.)

* SO W 08 has been incorporated into P5

* SO W 09, like SO W 02, provides a summary discussion for Council,
  not suggested additions to the Guidlines. Nonetheless, IIRC
  everything it discusses is in P5 now.

Thanks! Fixed.

You're quite right, I forgot the "folks are supposed to state which
module they'd like to adopt" part. But I guess I'm a bit confused:
are Council members supposed to volunteer for a module by going
through EDW84? Weren't you and Christian going to provide a concise
list of modules and a rough guestimate of how much work each needed
for Council members to use in deciding which module they'd like to
adopt? (I thought CW said he'd do that, and you said you'd help as,
now that you've put in all this effort on ST, you've a good notion of
how much work each module is likely to require .)

I did, though. "1 week" for whatever the intermediate stage was, and
"the next week" for completing the adoption process, which is why I
wrote it down as 2006-03-11.

What I wish we had done is also hammer out a date by which module
adopters should post their suggestions -- 2006-03-25?

Fixed, thanks.

Yes, he did. But now that I've taken a more careful look at it, I'm
with Lou -- while it may not be perfect, it's not that bad. No one
expects tables that need to be that wide and contain all sorts of
markup like that to look wonderful, anyway.

And did very rapidly, I will let everyone know. I've included a
statement to this effect in the first para under "P5", let me know if
it's satisfactory.
