Just a quick note: Ecma International posted a statement that they have dropped the second set of dispositions for review. That brings the total to 1,795 dispositions of the 3,522 comments submitted during the Sept. 2 ballot.
These dispositions represent changes to the specification based upon the comments. Rather than my trying to (and most likely mangling in some way) talk about this – check out Brian Jones’ blog posting on this.
Jan van den Beld, the former Secretary General of Ecma, has posted a blog posting on this as well. He points out some interesting facts about the volume of comments and how they compare to other specs (completely normal – one comment for every 4-6 pages).
