Ada Rapporteur Group
The ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG9 Ada Rapporteur Group (ARG) handles comments

The full text of all Ada Issues is available here. Keep
in mind that some issues are still under consideration,
and may change significantly before final approval.
This area is the home of the Ada Reference Manual (the Ada standard

The minutes of ARG meetings are stored here.
