INTERIM DECISION: ACCEPT 6 candidates from VEN-SGI (Final 7/5)




I have ACCEPTed the following candidates from VEN-SGI and will make a
Final Decision on 7/5.

The only candidate not accepted in the VEN-SGI cluster involved a
minor description change suggested by Adam Shostack, which has a small
but potentially controversial effect on content decisions with respect
to what goes into descriptive text.  I am delaying that candidate to
avoid diluting the current content decision discussions with a side
issue.
