Ok, remember that #109 is voted into MPI-3. I was not aware that we
also read chapters after we voted in all the parts. So we will then be
reading every item twice and will vote on every item four times,

We should really have a writeup of those rules and for the directions we
chose to go with the draft standards and MPI-3 in general. I am still
convinced that we should call the current draft MPI-2.3 and release it.

We can read it and vote on it as many times as we want, however, I fear
that we have to read/vote chapter 5 again for MPI-3 even though the
changes are probably trivial.

CORRECTION: We already voted on the nonblocking collectives #109. This
is a formal reading of the draft Chapter 5 for inclusion in a draft
MPI-3 standard.

All the Best,
