I was in the UK from 12-21 September. At some point toward the end of  
that week I sent a message saying that I was extending wadegile/pinyin  
for two weeks. I don't know what day I sent it. It was probably the  
17th-19th. That was doing my job. The two weeks isn't up yet.

Peter asked me to do some stuff about Pinyin and I am working on it.  
In the meantime we made progress with Belarusian, and I have now put  
forward a proposed revised wadegile request. Please concentrate on that.
