Lou, do you mean "the promise made in the first section of this chapter"?
The title of the chapter given in the HTML and PDF versions of the
Guidelines is already "Dictionaries", not "Print Dictionaries", so I
think Piotr is suggesting renaming the file to match the human-readable
form actually in use.

Yes, and this causes confusion because people who are working with
printed works aren't sure whether to use this chapter. On this note, I
think I've found a chair for a rechartered physical bibliography group
who can lead the many people who have expressed interest in the group
but been unwilling to lead the effort. I asked her to draft a new
charter that I could share with Council before the group gets started
(in case we feel they are headed in entirely the wrong direction).
