The consultation on the revised Policy Development Process is closing 
this week.

This version of the PDP incorporated changes as a result of the 
discussion and feedback from an earlier consult that took place in 
September 2011.

While it is delightful that there have been no objections to this 
version; if you have read the revised PDP and agree with it, a few posts 
in support would be most appreciated.
