Summer Status Update

Hey everyone,

First, I want to apologize for the long silence. In April, I circulated a survey for working in six subgroups, and response was good. As things turned out, however, I didn’t do the necessary follow-up. Worse, I didn’t post anything about any change of plans. I’m sorry if that caused you any difficulty.

Going forward, I’m hoping a few people will volunteer to help me organize these activities. If you’d be up for this, please reply directly to me and let’s figure something out. Also, I’ve left the survey open so you can edit your previous response or fill it out now if you never did: it’s here.

On September 17th, at the next W3C TPAC meeting, we’re scheduled to hold a face-to-face meeting of this group. It’s in Japan, though, and only four group members have registered, along with 13 observers. I’ve decided not to make the trip, so we’ll need a volunteer who is there to set up and run the meeting with remote participation, or I think we should cancel. The meeting is at 10:30am Japan time, which is probably okay for folks in Asia and the Americas, but quite difficult for Europe or Africa. Bottom line: if you’re going to be at TPAC and might be able to run things, please talk to me soon.

From responses to the scheduling survey, it looks like Tuesdays and Thursdays 1pm US/Eastern would be good for nearly everybody. If that’s changed, or you didn’t fill out the survey before and you want your availability taken into account, please do so now. (If doodle won’t let you edit your old entry, because you didn’t log in, just add another entry with your name.)

I’m thinking we’ll start having some subgroup meetings in 2-3 weeks, depending in part on responses to this post.

Thanks, and talk to you all soon,

— Sandro
