Simon,

Note that this isn't publically accessible.  People have to have CVS rights 
to it.  That's on purpose, because it's important that the quotes *not* 
get distributed to the press before official release date -- and a couple 
reporters read this list archives.  Hi, guys!

> So I suggest we swap Just-in-time for Async Commit.

I don't necessarily disagree with the priorities, but your changes are kind 
of untimely.  That text was there for over a month of discussion -- it's 
gone out to the translators already.  I'm sorry to be negative when you're 
trying to help, but I *begged* people to comment and correct in November.

So, do you feel that making the change is worth potentially having some of 
the translated versions be inconsistent because they don't get updated?

That's because the version you're looking at is the one I'm going to send 
out to the North American press, and is provided as an example.  The one 
you send out would, of course, have your and Raymond's contact info, and 
the one Charles sends out would have his.  To look at the *general* 
version, look in 8.3/translate -- that version will get filled in with the 
appropriate regional contacts for that language.

I'm not clear on what you're suggesting we do differently?
