Revisions archive? Alto Sax Petrofsky 14 Aug 2002 00:08 UTC

I'll start with a less contentious issue than srfi names...

The SRFI process document says:

   Every such revision shall be announced to, and all revisions will be retained in
   the permanent record of the SRFI.
   When the SRFI is accepted, it will be placed on the list of final
   SRFIs.  This will include a link to the history of the proposal,
   including all earlier versions and the archive of the discussion
   from the comment period.

I can't find the archive of SRFIs' pre-final revisions on  Is it there somewhere?  If not, I encourage the
editors to fix this.  This is not an abstract problem: I have read
discussion archives of some SRFIs and been unable to learn anything
from some of the arguments because they referred to parts of the SRFI
that are not present (or perhaps are relocated or renamed) in the
final revision.

Also, final-srfis.html lists SRFI-11 as "Syntax for Receiving Multiple
Values", but srfi-11/index.html titles it "Binding and Control
Expressions".  This little error reminds me that each SRFI's
"permanent record" should include a list of the different titles it
has had.
