     <h2 class="notoc" id="status">Status of this Document</h2>
     <p>W3C, including all existing chartered groups, follows the <a href="http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Process/">most recent operative
         Process Document</a> announced to the Membership.</p>
-    <p>This document is developed by the Advisory Board's Process Task Force (which anyone may join) working within the <a href="http://www.w3.org/community/w3process/">Revising
-        W3C Process Community Group</a>. This is the 23 April 2015 Editor's draft for the proposed next version of the W3C Process Document.
+
+    <p>This draft of the W3C Process Document is presented for
+    Advisory Committee Review and adoption by the W3C. This document
+    has been produced following the W3C Advisory Committee Last Call
+    review of the proposed update to the W3C Process.</p>
+
+    <p>W3C Advisory Committee Members are invited to send formal
+    review comments to the W3C Team until 28 June 2015 using the Call
+    for Review form. To comment, aside from Advisory Committee
+    comments, send email to
+    <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>

+
+    <p>This document has been produced by the W3C Advisory Board in
+    accordance with Section 12 of the
+    <a href="http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#GAProcess">current
+    (2014) W3C Process</a>.  Development of this document is done in
+    the Advisory Board's Process Task Force (which anyone may join)
+    working within the
+    <a href="http://www.w3.org/community/w3process/">Revising W3C
+    Process Community Group</a>.</p>
+
       This document is based on the 3 March review draft which was proposed to the Advisory Committee as a "last call" for an update to the
-      1 August 2014 Process.</p>
-    <p>This draft is expected to be proposed to the Advisory Committee for a formal AC review on whether to adopt this as the new operative
-      Process document. Further revision to the Process is expected as needed.</p>
+     <a href="http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/">1 August 2014 Process</a>.</p>
     <p>Sections have been renumbered, with the most notable change from the current Operative version being that section numbers 5 and above
       in this draft correspond to section numbers higher by 1 in the August 2014 Process.</p>
     <p>In <em>this draft</em> <a href="http://www.w3.org/community/w3process/track/issues/152">ISSUE-152</a> has been resolved, by
       allowing a Working Group to propose editorial corrections directly as a Proposed Recommendation. A <a href="#changes">change history</a>
-      (compared to the 2014 Process Document) forms part of this draft.</p>
