Hi Melvin, all,

Here's the procedure we came up with. Let's use "target CG" to refer to  
rww CG, and "source CG" to refer to unctsw CG in this case:

  * Everyone not yet in the target CG will need to join it.
  * If the target CG wants to take up the source CG's specification, they  
can, but:
    a) If they've published in the reports database, we'll want to make  
some adjustments about who
        own the report.
    b) We'll need contributors to the original specification to re-assert  
their commitment in the new group. A simple
        email will do.
  * We can close the source CG and leave some pointers that it's moved to  
the target CG.

It doesn't appear that unctsw CG has worked on any specification. If that  
is correct, only items 1 and 3 above apply.

Participants of the unctsw CG need to join rww CG:

There are 23 participants, 14 of whom are apparently already members of  
rww CG (internal ref:  

Kingsley Idehen (OpenLink Software Inc.)
Daniel Renfer (Daniel Renfer)
Ted Thibodeau (OpenLink Software Inc.)
Melvin Carvalho (Melvin Carvalho)
Dominik Tomaszuk (Dominik Tomaszuk)
Pavlik elf (Pavlik elf)
Markus Sabadello (Markus Sabadello)
Roger Macdonald (Roger Macdonald)
Julia Anaya (Julia Anaya)
Raanan Avidor (Raanan Avidor)
zeno ruset (zeno ruset)
Jonas Smedegaard (Jonas Smedegaard)
Ivan Herman (Ivan Herman)
Henry Story (The Apache Software Foundation)

We can close unctsw CG at the end of October (or sooner, as appropriate).

The description of rww CG should be updated to reflect this change. The  
current description reads:
Focus on Read-Write aspect of the WWW via use of WebID protocol and ACLs.

Let me know what to replace it with. Let me know if you feel it does NOT  
need to be replaced. If this is the case I invite the chair of RWW CG to  
blog about the change.

Does this plan work for people?
