That's my objection to increasing the number and pace of drafts.

The way I try to informally handle it is to try to keep clear in the
email discussion list which repo is the current most up to date, and I
provide a link to it when it's mine.  Not authoritative as such, but
reflects the current thinking about the SRFI.

Not sure there's often going to be two different authors updating the
raw SRFI text at the same time due to the repo coordination issues
that can create.

Not a good solution by itself for someone who's just joining an
SRFI effort, and we *really* want to support those people.
