[tei-council] An easy ticket

I thought we had agreed to make new releases *after* council meetings, 
not before?

What's the rush? A 1.9 release at the end of April would enable us to 
resolve at least some of the long outstanding issues (including music, 
genetic editing, bibliog issues...) after discussion at a ftf. 
Otherwise, what's the justification for spending all that money on a 
meeting which won't have any visible outputs for another six months?

Several people have been nagging me about the need to make genetic 
proposals a bit more visible. However, I don't remember much discussion 
on this list or subsequent to the Dublin meeting at which we agreed them 
in principle. Am I really being given carte blanche by the council to 
just copy everything from tcw14 into the Guidelines without further 
discussion? This seems unlikely, and a dangerous precedent.
