This is exactly what I was suggesting — with the hope that we can settle
on some provisional fixes for the issues raised on the call today within
two days, we can publish a stable draft before the IGF, continue to
solicit feedback on the draft from our communities, and finalize it after
the IGF, either on Sept 6, on the list, or whenever we schedule our next
conference call.
