Shawn Medero (Shawn Medero <smedero@uw.edu>) Yes, agree We need to publish regularly to not only satisfy the "heartbeat" requirement on paper but the spirit of what the heartbeat sets out to accomplish - to keep the public regularly informed as to our progress and use the additional attention a working draft garners to gather feedback from interested parties.

Sam Johnston (Sam Johnston <samj@samj.net>) Yes, agree Publicity should garner more attention and input, and we're at a good point in the browser (eg Firefox) development cycle - a major release beta.
Jon Barnett (Jon Barnett <jonbarnett@gmail.com>) Yes, agree Yes, HTML 5 is in a working web-compatible state and it useful as a draft.

If Web Forms 2 is to be incorporated into HTML 5, however, either the Draft should link to the Web Forms 2 draft with a note that the two are part of the same work, or Web Forms 2 should just be incorporated into HTML 5 now. Without Web Forms 2, you're missing a large chunk of the story of HTML 5.

Benjamin Meadowcroft (Benjamin Meadowcroft <ben@benmeadowcroft.com>) Yes, agree Releasing the working draft should prompt more feedback from the web development community that will prove beneficial. Especially given the number of changes that are being proposed.

Alex Robinson (Alex Robinson <w3c@alex.fu2k.org>) Yes, agree
Nokia Corporation (Mikko Honkala <mikko.honkala@nokia.com>) Yes, agree I hope we can also release a human readable diff document comparing this release to the earlier WD. This can be automatically generated, of course. An example of such a diff doc is here: http://tinyurl.com/5xvn58 .

University of Innsbruck DUPLICATE (Alexander Graf <alexander.graf@sti2.at>) Yes, agree Yes, in order to comply with the Heartbeat requirements.
Disruptive Innovations (Daniel Glazman <daniel.glazman@disruptive-innovations.com>) Yes, agree I think the whole @alt discussion is a very bad signal for this specification. I have discussed with a few accessibility experts who are VERY skeptical about html5 to say the least...
I would say that html5 has to be published as a draft to show there's progress being done, but I'm not sure I like the way important technical decisions are made. I'm not even sure any more about the so-called backwards-compatibility mentioned in the intro of the document. I'm not even sure html5 is "a new version of html4 and xhtml1"...
Laura Carlson (Laura Carlson <laura.lee.carlson@gmail.com>) Yes, agree Although the process has not embraced consensus building and I do not agree with some of the content in the current draft, attempting to block publication is not a productive action at this time.

Public review and comment from outside the Working Group are vitally needed and should be vigorously sought, especially in regard to accessibility features being dropped or changed.
Orange (Stéphane Deschamps <stephane.deschamps@orange.com>) Yes, agree
Julian Reschke (Julian Reschke <julian.reschke@gmx.de>) Yes, agree
Patrick Lauke (Patrick Lauke <redux@splintered.co.uk>) Yes, agree
Microsoft Corp. (Chris Wilson <cwilso@google.com>) Abstain Though in general I approve of the heartbeat, as I expressed before due to the IP effect of FPWD, I'd prefer to delay this until that clock runs out in June. I also noted that editor's drafts are publicly available.I also think the "a better version of this is available from the WHATWG" line should be stripped from the HTML WG version.
Robert Burns (Robert Burns <rob@robburns.com>) No, disagree I think the next draft should add significant new features (e.g., Ruby), even if only in a skeletal form so that the public understands the document is not only be fine-tuned.
Gregory Rosmaita (Gregory Rosmaita <gregory.rosmaita@gmail.com>) No, disagree i continue to be disappointed that the drafting process for HTML5 has not fully embraced consensus building; i also have serious reservations about some of the content of the current editor's draft -- and even more concern over the lack of content in the current draft, such as information about forms in HTML5 and working semantics/equivalence for CANVAS; i also realize, that attempting to block publication will not be interpreted as a "productive action"; however, given the overwhelming number of "Yes, I Agrees" already logged, there is no reason why i shouldn't use my vote to log my STRONG preference for waiting until the end of the june heartbeat requirement period to publish so that the editors have time to incorporate more WG-generated content into the HTML5 draft...re: forms - if there is to be no hybrid of WF2 and XForms nor "common architectural model", is it time for the WG to to consider either voting on support for both, or for XForms Transitional?

2. Release "HTML 5 differences from HTML 4" specification as a W3C Working Draft as well?

Shall we release an update of HTML 5 differences from HTML 4 along with the HTML 5 specification as a W3C Working Draft? Specifically, revision 1.42 of May 15 16:03:36 2008 UTC plus any publication-related changes agreed by Anne van Kesteren and Mike Smith.

Disruptive Innovations (Daniel Glazman <daniel.glazman@disruptive-innovations.com>) Abstain Not sure that a purely informative doc that contains nothing normative has to be a WD ; could be a Note.
Laura Carlson (Laura Carlson <laura.lee.carlson@gmail.com>) Abstain Rationale for absence of many attributes is still very brief. Rationale needs to be provided for the attribute list (especially Absent Attributes).

The differences document needs to be in sync with the specification. If it does not keep pace, it will cause confusion.
Orange (Stéphane Deschamps <stephane.deschamps@orange.com>) Yes, agree
Julian Reschke (Julian Reschke <julian.reschke@gmx.de>) Yes, agree
Patrick Lauke (Patrick Lauke <redux@splintered.co.uk>) Yes, agree
Microsoft Corp. (Chris Wilson <cwilso@google.com>) Yes, agree I consider this to be a simultaneous deliverable with the HTML5 spec.
Robert Burns (Robert Burns <rob@robburns.com>) No, disagree See rationale #1.
Gregory Rosmaita (Gregory Rosmaita <gregory.rosmaita@gmail.com>) No, disagree i believe that the differences document isn't very meaningful until there is a modicum of consensus on what HTML5 means, as there still seems to be a gap between a language evolved from HTML 4.01 (as specified in the charter) and HTML5 in its current incarnation... in fact, maintaining this document at this point in the "process" may be more detrimental than productive, as it is a snapshot of easily obsoleted information which doesn't actually reflect the state of the HTML5 draft, which is still "in flux"i strongly recommend to the chairs that this document be suspended in favor of a wikified document, which could be more immediately updated when changes are effected to the HTML5 draft -- this would also serve to give higher "visibility" to changes to the draft and what they mean and how they correlate to HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0

3. Decision process

As publication is necessary for progress of the group and this is a non-technical question, we will decide it by counting votes. A quorum is 40 working group participants, including representatives of 12 of the 25 participating W3C member organizations. Provided we have a quorum and 'yes' votes outnumber 'no' and 'formal objection' votes by a 2/3rds majority, the question carries.

Section 3.3 Consensus in the W3C process defines consensus as a "substantial number" in support of a proposal and no formal objections. In this survey, you may indicate disagreement without formally objecting. An individual who registers a Formal Objection should cite technical arguments and propose changes that would remove the Formal Objection. Please put your arguments (or a pointer to your arguments) in the rationale field.

Though, I am not formally objecting in this questionnaire, I'd rather not see the narrowing of tenants like this. In the meaning of technical in the W3C policies it is certainly a technical question whether the document is published or not.
