March 7, 2006
Since the last report of the Steering Committee, a number of important changes have taken place.
First, Marc Feeley and Manuel Serrano have resigned from the Editors Committee. We have accepted their resignations with regret, and with gratitude for the efforts they have expended to produce a revised Scheme standard.
In light of these changes, the Steering Committee has amended the Charter to:
(a) change the number of Editors from seven to five.
(b) replace the office of Editor-in-Chief by a Chair and a Project Editor. The Chair is responsible for organizing meetings and other activities and ensuring that the process makes progress in an orderly fashion. The Project Editor is responsible for producing standardization documents.
The five editors have chosen their Chair and Project Editor. They are:
Chair: Kent Dybvig
Project Editor: Mike Sperber
The Editors Committee has now produced a progress report, which is available at schemers.org. In it they state their intention to deliver to the Steering Committee a complete draft R6RS by September 1, 2006.
The Steering Committee looks forward to receiving their draft.
