Proposed Change to Bankruptcy Rules 8002 - re Time to File Notice of Appeal

This is from the US Courts website.  My personal view is that 10 days is too short. 

Request for Comment on Bankruptcy Rule 8002: Due by February 15, 2008

In August 2007, the Rules Committees published for public comment proposed amendments to the Appellate, Bankruptcy, Civil, and Criminal Rules governing the computation of time under the rules. Among other things, Bankruptcy Rule 8002 is proposed to be amended to set 14 days as the deadline for filing a notice of appeal from a judgment, order, or decree in a bankruptcy case.  The Advisory Committee on Bankruptcy Rules invites public comment on whether the proposed extension from 10 to 14 days would cause any material disruption in bankruptcy practice.  Comment is also invited on whether the deadline should be extended to 30 days, making it consistent with the 30-day general civil appellate deadline imposed by Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(a)(1).  Comments on both issues can be submitted electronically. 

Comments should be submitted by February 15, 2008.
