SM, co-chairs et al,
I am not entirely certain SM's revision is inline with our PDP.
According to 5.1 of our current PDP
>No change can be made to a draft policy within one week of the meeting.
SM seems to have followed that very well :-)

However, the second paragraph of 5.1 reads
>"The draft policy shall be available for review for at
>least four weeks before the next Public Policy Meeting.
>The author(s) shall make the necessary changes to the
>draft policy according to the feedback received"

It's not clear if  "draft policy," in this context refers to the
policy as a document in whole (including all revisions), or to a
version of the document. This is particularly important because the
last I checked all revisions of a policy had to have a fresh/unique

In the absence of this distinction I would argue that any
version/revision of the policy could be referred to as a " draft
policy," and in which case SM would be late

Life is the educator's practical joke in which you spend the first
half learning, and the second half learning that everything you
learned in the first was a joke.
