    Thierry, I appreciate your latest results, but clearly the presentation falls well short of complying with our rules.
    Justin Allport has itemized the deficiencies:
    Justin closed with the comment, "I leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide if it's the posted data or the rules
    themselves that are inappropriate for the list." 
    Given that the rules were written by someone with little knowledge of the subject (me!), it is quite likely that some of
    them are incorrect, irrelevant or impractical. That is why, when I posted them in draft form, I requested advice from
    the imagers. Unfortunately, no one responded. 
    I am open to revisions. When I informed Ralf Vandebergh (off list) of the new rules, he asked about flexibility on the
    60 s requirement for raw frames. I responded that I was open to some flexibility, but Ralf then made it clear that he
    would not support the rules regardless.
    In the following message - addressed to Thierry, but open to everyone for comment - I raised the 60 s requirement issue,
    and also the possibility of an exemption in case no extraordinary claims of resolution are made. I also sought advice on
    several other of the more technical rules:
    Unfortunately, no one responded.
    The door remains open to improving the rules, but I expect those in effect at any given time to be followed.
