The statement in 2.b, in conjunction with a July 2009 Effective
Date (see the top of the document), leaves documents published
between the presumptive Effective Date of the procedures in
effect today and that date in a strange sort of never-never
land, since 2.b doesn't mention 5378.
The Feb. 15 version of the TLP is currently in effect. Documents
published between Feb. 15 and the effectiveness of the revised TLP will
continue to be governed by the Feb. 15 TLP. There should be no gap in
I can only infer from this that the Trustees did not do a
careful review of the proposed new procedures in toto.
That is not true.
