I agree that the editors have fallen down on their self-assigned duty 
here. Syd and I discussed the problem briefly last weekend, because I 
knew that I was going to be completely unable to do any TEI work this 
week, and I asked him to consider attempting some sort of triage report 
for the next call, but I don't know whether his other responsibilities 
have permitted him to do so as yet.
