Dear Jeff

Thanks for the announcement and for your own great and painstaking efforts
over producing CF 1.7. It's great to have a new version at last. CF 1.6 was
published in Dec 2011! When we changed to the new method of managing the
document, we also agreed that in future we would have six-monthly releases
(if there are any changes to be made; see ticket 146, now closed).

In ticket 160 we are still discussing the use of GitHub for proposing future
changes. I'll add to that soon.

Best wishes
