Re: Clarify mutability of all define-record-type <field spec>

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 99 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 99 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

These comments are timely, as I have been preparing
a new draft of SRFI 99.

Okay, will do.
