WG5 - please find attached the corrected J3 interp letter ballot #28.  Interp F03/0053 is not being balloted.

Dan Nagle - please use as the paper number for the attached paper the paper number assigned to the original LB #28 and put this r1 in the J3 meeting 201 directory.

Thanks                                                              /Stan

From:      Stan Whitlock
Subject:   J3 Fortran interp letter ballot #28 - due 19-Apr-2013
Date: 12-Mar-2013

r1: remove F03/0053 from ballot - it has already passed J3 LB #27

Enclosed in the next letter ballot on Fortran interpretations.

The rules by which we operate say:

    o   J3 votes on the answer at a J3 meeting; a simple majority
        vote marks the answer as "passed by J3 meeting".

    o   Between J3 meetings the chair of /interp sends a J3 letter
        ballot to J3 to approve interp answers that have been "passed
        by J3 meeting".  The letter ballot runs for 30 days.  Not
        voting on three of four consecutive J3 letter ballots is
        grounds to terminate J3 membership.  An interp answer passes
        by a 2/3rds vote;  a no vote must be accompanied by an
        explanation of the changes necessary to change the member's
        vote to yes.

        J3/interp reserves the right to recall an interp answer for
        more study even if the answer passes.

12 Fortran interpretations are currently "Passed by J3 meeting" after
J3 meeting #200.  This is the letter ballot phase to go from "Passed
by J3 meeting" to "Passed by J3 letter ballot".

The following Fortran interpretations are being balloted:

The text of these interpretations is attached.  Each interpretation
