It's probably too late at this point, with only a few days left,  
although any contributions from anyone are of course more than welcome.

Well, I don't think we're going to come back from Seattle with a  
decision to replace the current draft with one of the other languages.  
As far as I know there's nobody there who's going to push for such an  
outcome, and in any case it wouldn't be the right way to approach this.

Most likely what we will do is try to come up with a way forward so  
that we can have something substantial to discuss in Leipzig in  
November. And that reminds me: it would be great if you could be there  
and take part in that discussion.

In any case, I don't think you need fear that we will come back and  
say "this is what we've decided, and you're all going to like it".  
Whatever we do, if it doesn't have community acceptance it's not going  
to fly. So whatever we come back with will be more of a proposal than  
a decision.

I hope that helps somewhat.
