Hi fantasai,

Either we were confused for the past several telcons, or the changes
section of Writing Modes 3 is incomplete.
Rossen: fantasai, I was wondering if we made progress on Writing
Modes, Values & Units or UI.
fantasai: Values & Units has a DoC and I need to next fix the
changes list.
fantasai: Writing modes nothing this week.
Rossen: I see last week we had a question on CR or PR. I looked at
minutes and I believe we agreed PR.
fantasai: It was if process requires CR first because there were
*substantive changes*.
Rossen: Okay. I'll reconfirm with Chris or Bert. I recall it was
PR.
But from the changes section (and also on the transition request for PR
that I am writing) it says the changes are editorial.
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-writing-modes-3/#changes

- Three features were deferred to the next level, all of which were
marked as at-risk in the previous CR
- A security and privacy appendix was added, which is informative and
not substantive.

Are there other changes (not reflected in the changes section) which
make this substantive and thus requiring another CR and another minimum
period before going to PR?

Hi Chris,
Yes, there was a resolution here:
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2017May/0057.html
to this issue:
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/1391
which is now edited in and added to the Changes section.

The Disposition of Comments is prepared here:
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=is%3Aissue%20label%3Acss-writing-modes-3%20
(It is short and clear enough that I didn't generate a separate index.)

Let me know if you need any further information; I will otherwise let you and
the chairs sort out the various process requirements for publishing REC. :)

Thanks~
