Meetings | Current Drafts | Justification and Goals | Members | WG List Archive
Meetings of the SGML Working Group are scheduled twice a year by the SGML ERB. Since most WG business is conducted by electronic mail (see Justification and Goals), attendance at meetings is optional. Meetings for the next year have tentatively been planned as follows:
Draft production and maintenance is carried out by the SGML ERB. The W3C SGML ERB Working Document Repository is maintained by Tim Bray.
The functioning of the SGML WG is formally defined by the Technical Resolution W3C-SGML-ERB TC-1996-01. The overall goal of the WG is to serve as a panel of SGML experts that provides input to the SGML ERB and reviews its work. Its deliverables are defined as the work of the ERB progresses. Membership in the WG is by invitation of the chair of the ERB or by nomination of W3C member organizations. The WG is chartered in a way that requires no W3C resources beyond the maintenance of a mailing list and imposes little expense on WG participants.
Current issues before the WG are identical to the current issues before the ERB.
Members of the WG are expected to respond to issues on the mailing list in a timely fashion. Current WG members include:

The WG list archive serves not only as the repository for discussions within the WG but also as the record of decisions made by the SGML ERB.
