Dear taxacomers,

the code will soon accept electronic publications starting from january 
2012. With this, I am concerned about two related things:

1. What will the rule and/or institution in charge of establishing the 
excact date of publication in electronic publications? If I send a message 
with a new species description to ten collegues and tell them to print it, 
will this count at valid publication?

2. The diagnosis will be accepted also in English. As many diagnoses are 
short species descriptions, does this mean that if the species description 
is English, a diagnosis will not be necessary?

Kindest Regards,
