LRM plan
Alain presented the LRM editing workplan and informed on the current status of the LRM activities. The complete text of the standard documents is available. Alain already started to create the baseline document. Ernst will try to support him if possible. Alain intends to complete this step by the end of September. Afterwards, tasks T2 and T3 can be started. If the VHDL 2008 organisation will be used some parts have to be moved. Alain will create a protected (private) area where he will place documents in progress and feedback can be organized.
