That's fine - anybody who has time to look at it, that 
would be great, but we have the next two weeks to 
finish our internal review and to have the official copy
for the reading ready. The deadline is 7/4. It would
be good to get larger comments (if there are any, I 
hope not) throughout next week, though, so I have 
some time to integrate them.

This Monday I would like to mainly cover the open 
questions listed in the email. These are the things
I came across going through the various comments
from last time and from editing the document.
