The POSIX panel recommendation for SC22 N3161 is as follows:

"Accept, with the comment that the Disposition of Comments from other bodies that are in the detailed change request reports being developed by the joint working group ("The Austin Group") be implemented in the final draft."

I will submit the detailed disposition if required (these are very large documents). In the interim the URLs for the latest drafts are:


The final versions are due either today or tomorrow and will have the r2.txt notations.

Please can you acknowledge receipt of this message and advise who to send the detailed Disposition of Comments  to.

Best regards
