Hello, everyone!

I think it's strange that there is absolutely no traffic here, while so many
important issues haven't been discussed to an end. Last time we seem to have
reached a good consensus on the language problem, but nobody has told
whether or not the current draft would be changed because of this, and
indeed still says "Last modified
on May 3, 2000". My idea that all diacritic signs should be allowed like
diaereses already are in Note 17.1.1: "The use of the diaeresis, indicating
that a vowel is to be pronounced separately from the preceding vowel, is not
part of the orthography of a name, though it may be included in an
established name as an optional pronunciation guide." has received quite
some discussion long ago, but no consensus and no official opinion of any
sort. The question about why Art. 4.3 is so extremely strict has not been
discussed at all, even though many people even regard the ICZN which allows
much more as far too strict (it automatically regards all theses and
dissertations as unpublished, like Art. 4.3, and has therefore met harsh
criticism on the Dinosaur mailing list).
        Not to mention the whole species issue, but I at least will wait for
the announced paper on the subspecies problem before continuing the
discussion here.
        While I am at asking, how's the Companion Volume going? :-)
