The editors have looked at the list and come to the conclusion that the
draft should be changed for the following tickets:

    #478 "Procedure equivalence should return" per the unanimous
    WG vote;

    #479 "Character names like 'xbeef' can be read two ways" as an
    editorial matter;

    #507 "R6RS/R7RS incompatibility of bytevector-copy! procedure"
    as an editorial matter, given that the originator believes the
    draft version is correct.

These changes have been made in the repository and reviewed by
the editors, along with other editorial changes enumerated at

The editors have also recommended that the WG take no action on
tickets #480-#536.  Aaron Hsu has agreed to this in respect of the
tickets #503, #510, and #512-#519, which are drawn from his ballot.
If the WG agrees, I will poll the originators of the remaining tickets
by email to determine whether they are satisfied with this resolution
and update PlebisciteObjections accordingly.
