Hi Jeff, Hi Martin,

argh ... sorry for being so late on this (see my other mail), but
could you take the two calls


out of the embiggening? The MPI_Count for the count argument does not
really help in practice, so we (the tools WG) decided we would not
need it.

I hope this does not re-rail your announcement of the reading.

Yes, the Chapter Chairs/Committees have reviewed the Embiggened sections.  But it doesn't seem like this is within the intended scope of the "no no" vote.  A "no no" vote is supposed to be for "small" things.
