No.

RCRchive is to be remade. Most RCRs will be tossed
because new RCRs are required to explain the WHY
behind the proposed change and come replete with tests
and sample implementations. (Most current RCRs don’t
satisfy these criteria.)

No.

In fact, I’m hard at work on the new RCRchive. Stay tuned. It’s
going to operate somewhat differently, and will be focused on 1.9/2.0
changes.

Mind you, they’re supposed to :slight_smile: It’s always been a requirement that
proposals include Abstract, Problem, Analysis, and Implementation –
lots of “why”, etc. Most RCRs are done conscientiously and
diligently, but some are not very complete. Hopefully the new
logistics of the process will encourage more consistent compliance.

Sorry, that was sloppy explaining on my part. I’ve tried to clean it
up.

Cool. Let’s just make sure that the old ones don’t get "tossed’, as
I’m sure there’ll be some historical value in them.

Thanks,
