I'll follow the suggestion that Owen and you made.

I didn't mention the two weeks as that is in the PDP document.  If 
the procedure is updated, I suggest using "as specified in ...".

That sounds like a good idea.  I'll elaborate on what has happened 
since the last face-to-face meeting so that you can have a better 
view.  After the last Public Policy Meeting, the Interim Chairs were 
required to publish minutes within three weeks.  That was done within 
a few days of the deadline.  An an exceptional case, I requested an 
analysis of the two proposals.  That should generally be done before 
the Public Policy Meeting.  The reports were submitted approximately 
ten weeks after the meeting.

If the deadline for the Last Call is four weeks after a meeting, the 
Chairs will have to get the minutes published within two weeks.  That 
gives the authors two weeks to get their proposals ready for the Last 
Call.  If you want to specify within four weeks, I suggest making it 
light-weight or else it will end up being a rushed job.
