I don't want to post any of the position papers until Friday, since last
year I felt that posting the papers early led to people saying "I agree
with what Candidate X wrote in his position paper". However, I will say 
that I have received Council position papers (or have been informed that
Council position papers are forthcoming) from Paul Curtis, Dave Smith,
Matt Miller, and Jacek Konieczny. I have received no Board position
papers.

Because I will not be a candidate for Board or Council, I would be happy
to provide feedback (editorial and otherwise) on position papers before
they are published. I also think it would be appropriate for candidates
to submit an initial position paper, then make modifications to it after
the discussion period (see [1]) and before the voting starts, so that
the final version of the position paper reflects the candidate's settled
views and goals.

Peter
