AWWSW final report...

While David's work on the final report (
http://www.w3.org/wiki/AwwswFinalReport ) was good as an overall
neutral summary of what we did, I felt it wasn't going to serve the
TAG's needs as well as it could, those needs being
- to evaluate what the group did relative to its original goals
- to become aware of areas of agreement and sources of discord
- to decide whether to accept the final report as a record of the
group's work, and
- to think about next steps.
So I wrote a new one...

This draft is probably full of my opinions, but it's hard for me to
know how much is shared unless I ask you. We may have to gut it to
make something we can agree on; that's OK. But first I want to ask who
wants to be in on the agreeing group, and just how much of it that
group can agree on.

I had forgotten all that stuff about LSIDs from the 207 meeting. I
found it useful because the point of comparison helps anchor the
discussion. I know we haven't discussed LSIDs much but am hoping it's

Could the non-lurkers on public-awwsw go through this document, and either
(a) identify yourself as wanting to be a signer, and then identify
parts that you'd want deleted or modified before signing, or
(b) bow out of the group of signers. (If you're on this list but don't
respond pretty quickly I'll assume you don't want to be a signer.)

Then I will iterate. Maybe some back-and-forth but I will prefer
deletion to re-raising things we've already discussed unprofitably.

A rapid response would be much appreciated, as I'd like to be able to
tell the TAG this Thursday whether the report is likely to be ready in
time for TAG members to read before the next TAG F2F, which is October

My objective is a TAG resolution to accept a report as final and get
us off the hook. We might want to think about the current TAG
membership in anticipating reasons why they might not want to do this.
