I did some work on the Wiki. I have revamped the Submissions page [1]  
so that now it only lists candidates for inclusion in the Core  
Vocabulary document. This means that there are no duplications, in  
case of multiple submissions for the same property or something that  
was very similar, I tried to summarize into a single property and it  
is listed so.

All the submissions are still available in a new page [2].

Today the group agreed to define a deadline after which a decision  
will be made about which of the properties submitted so far should be  
included in the first draft. This is a very good time for you to  
review and comment.

I think that the group needs some feedback about all the properties  
in general, but I think that two topics are particularly hot:
1) some properties such as image formats can be described in at least  
2 ways, either as a number of single properties (gif_support,  
jpeg_support, png_support, etc) or as a single property  
(image_support='gif, jpeg, png').
2) degree of support. We will have properties that will tell the  
developers if, for example, a markup is supported, but we all know  
that very rarely 100% support is achieved, nevertheless it is  
possible that a markup is considered to be supported by a browser  
even if it supports 95% of the specification. The question is how  
could we decided if and when something is considered supported even  
if not the full specification is supported?

We, as a group, are aiming for a first public draft of the document  
around the first week of October and this means that all comments  
should be sent before the end of September and possibly earlier so  
that we can discuss them on this list.
