draft document has been updated with all changes proposed at the
Working Group meeting yesterday and is now presumed to be effectively

I respectfully request that all members of the Server Working Group
(CCed) respond with an approval vote, or if they feel something
requires changing, please describe it in detail.

Given that we must submit this to FESCo and the Board by Monday, I am
setting a hard deadline on Friday at 1600 UTC for votes.
