subject: WGII submission deadline different from WGI
WGI and II working to different deadlines. I'm happier with our date, as it should
mean we can finalize sections sooner.
I propose to send you the current chapter as of June 3 at 5pm my time.
I should have 3.5-3.7 finished (at least by me, Roxana, Jim and Panamo). Brian
says his revised 3.4 will be later this week (family bereavement). I've been through
the Boxes and 3.1.
No figures or text yet from Dave. Forwarded two papers to Albert and asked how
he's getting on.
My fod folder with pdfs in now has 20 in it.
