> Everyone:
> As you may or may not know, the Scheme Editors (including Matthew
> Flatt) have drafted the next version of the revised report on Scheme
> (R6RS). One goal of this Report process is to bring the various
> implementations closer than they are now. The Scheme Report Steering
> Committee has opened the ratification process. Unless 60% of the
> Scheme community votes _for_ the document, it is rejected and I
> believe that this will do significant harm for the Scheme brand.
> I am therefore urging everyone on this list to register for
> ratification and to vote in support of the draft document. While it
> is obvious that this 6th edition of the Report isn't perfect, I have
> no doubts that the previous ones weren't either (R2RS, R3RS, R4RS,
> R5RS). Otherwise we obviously wouldn't have successor reports that
> revise feature, delete features, and add features. The Editors have
> worked hard for almost three years on this project and what we need
> now is experience with the design, not more discussions.
