FWIW, I am in the process of re-issuing the LC right now. The push is through, 
I just wait for the build and then we’ll get the emails. First, because the 
text in XEP-0001 is pretty clear on this (and if you don’t agree, we have to 
change XEP-0001), and second, because Kevins argument in response to my 
questioning of the XEP-0001 rule has convinced me personally.

(Third, if we draw this argument even longer, it will only make is less likely 
that the XEP can pass this year.)

The LC will end on 2017-12-21. This is unfortunate, and I think we might want 
to modify XEP-0001 to allow for 12 day periods in the case of a re-issuance, 
because this neatly aligns with council meetings, with a day buffer for 
editors to do their work. 14 day periods will almost always cost a week of 
voting time for Council.

If the council makes up their mind during the LC and can vote immediately on a 
possibly very short meeting on the 27th, we could still push this through this 

kind regards,
