No :)
I meant what I wrote (this time).
To me drafting is an iterative process that happens *after* the content
has been fleshed out. From then on it's an editing and formatting
process only - kind of like a Debian Testing freeze (hold the great
ideas until the next edition).

Not that I have your journalistic background so the term drafting may
mean different things to me. I just see draft and think beer - maybe
it's the heat.
