How can someone possibly come up with the missing 8 references ? How
can anyone but William know what link he intended to use ? It seems to
me that you did not either read the reviews or give much though about
it before belittling _that_ work. (yeah that is the review-content of
the email you _top-posted_ on).
The purpose of the review round is to fact check the LOWN before 'publication'
William is doing a great job.. but so much data means that some of it
is bound to come up wrong....
William, as the Editor and main contributor of that publication,
requested a review.. Review does not means got fix it, it means check
and give feed-back.
Of course everyone is invited to help William compile LOWN, but in my
mind, pre-publication 'review' should be in the form of feed back, so
that the Editor is aware of what is in the published document, even
maybe compile an address book of people to ask review or explanation
from over time... you know, like good journalist do when preparing a
piece. Reading wiki diff is really not fun, much less fun than reading
Bear in mind too that the current 'Wiki' format is just 'because it is
convenient'... I can imagine, especially if William can gather
support and contributor around the idea of LOWN, that a better
support, more stable and reliable, be chosen for 'publication'. maybe
in the form of a tdf-branded dedicated blog or some other media...

That is what happen when someone ask for 'review'... although your
conception of 'tiny' is quite peculiar...

No, it should be done by as many person as necessary, and most
importantly by a set of person that can competently talk about the
different topics under review.
Point in case is Robert Antoni review. no other '2nd person' would
have known better than himself if he had sent a license statement and
point to it in the ML.
