Due to cogent, though not very timely, objections to the form of SRFI 112, I have posted a new draft and I am aborting the vote. Sorry, folks; I'm still feeling my way into this novel process. The new draft of SRFI 112 is now posted. I have renamed the confusing system-instance procedure to the semantically transparent machine-name, and removed c-memory-model altogether in anticipation of a later package for determining the C memory model at run time. Because I want people to be able to consider the new draft carefully, and because of other commitments I have, I'm postponing the new vote to August 12th, ending at noon UTC on August 19th. I have updated the WG2Calendar. If you have new suggestions, please offer them before August 12th. It's important to remember that this is a *logging* API, whose procedures return strings intended for human consumption. Taking conditional action based on the value returned by one of these procedures is not recommended, and any procedure that returns a value meant to be further examined or manipulated by a program doesn't belong here. For example, a procedure to return the working directory wouldn't fit, as programs would expect to use that in order to find files. For some suggestions that have already been offered and will be looked at later, see MiscEnvironmentSchudy. Existing votes will not be invalidated, but of course people can change their votes if they want. -- "Why yes, I'm ten percent Jewish on my manager's side."
