Here's a more complete list:

- Ticket #45 just contains a bunch of "should"s.  Does that mean I make
  those changes?  I'm assuming yes.

- Where do the sorting procedures go?  I'm assuming a separate library
  (r6rs sorting)?

- Where do `file-exists?' and `delete-file' go?  I'm assuming a
  separate library (r6rs files)?

- What are we going to call the bytes objects?  This should be a
  simple matter of making a list of candidates and voting on the
  favorite, right?

- What can I do wrt. Ticket #87?  It has six specific examples.
  Presumably "library phasing" and "script syntax" will be taken care
  of as a result of addressing other tickets.

  o Can I make the suggested change wrt. immutable objects?
  o Did you discuss on how to resolve the unspecified-value issue?
    Re-start community discussion?
  o Can I make changes along the lines of what I posted?

- Somebody else will need to write up the new I/O proposal.  I'm all
  out of those.

- Kent: What's the story with a more formal description of macro

- Kent, Matthew: Can you guys also (in addition to the phasing stuff)
  make the changes to the description of the expansion algorithm
  mentioned in the responses?

- Please read the conditions proposal here:


  and either agree to it or poke holes in it or suggest alternatives.

Cheers =8-} Mike
Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla
