(j3.2006) Resubmitting J3 papers
Tue Jan 23 15:03:33 EST 2007
I was going to complain about this at the last meeting but we were too busy
with technical work. The next one seems similar and I cannot make it to it
I am rather unhappy with the procedure we have, which requires the people that
wrote up papers that did not get processed to resubmit them every time and
update page numbers. We already did the work of reviewing the document,
finding problems, and submitting papers, and just because subgroup did not
make it to them should not make us at fault and burden us with redoing the
same thing three times in a row.
I simply do not have the time to do this for the Feb. meeting with any level
of detail and care. I'll come in May and submit papers, and only submit new
burning issues now. Subgroups should take it upon them to identify technical
flaws which were identified in meetings at previous papers but never solved.
Subgroups should also not avoid the difficult issues and defer them to the
end, since this leaves the hard stuff and it is likely to slip off leaving
technical issues unfixed and forgotten...
