This is a Formal Response to Formal Comment #456:
Adoption of R6RS
This Formal Comment objected to the following passage in the Introduction:
The resulting standard, the R6RS, was completed in August
2007, and was organized as a core language and set of mandatory
standard libraries. The size and goals of the R6RS, however, were
controversial, and adoption of the new standard was not as widespread
as had been hoped.
This has been tentatively replaced by the following:
The resulting standard, the R6RS, was completed in August 2007,
and was organized as a core language and set of mandatory standard
libraries. Several new implementations of Scheme conforming to it
were created. However, most existing R5RS implementations (even
excluding those which are essentially unmaintained) did not adopt
R6RS, or adopted only selected parts of it.
If you are dissatisfied with this Formal Comment, please let us know.
Thank you for participating in the R7RS process.

Arise, you prisoners of Windows / Arise, you slaves of Redmond, Wash,
The day and hour soon are coming / When all the IT folks say "Gosh!"
It isn't from a clever lawsuit / That Windowsland will finally fall,
But thousands writing open source code / Like mice who nibble through a wall.
