The primary objective of the meeting is to advance the Widgets 1.0 specification suite by discussing and resolving open issues.

The overall scheduling of the topics is loose, in that only a few of the agenda items have pre-defined time slots to accommodate meeting with other groups.

We will attempt to close all open issues by the end of the meeting. Therefore, please be prepared to comment on: a) all of the Open Issues explicitly identified in the specs and b) the open Widgets issues in the Issues Database. Closing issues before the meeting is preferred.

If you have any related WebApps Open Actions, please close them before the meeting.
