Hi all,

there are 250+ people on this mailing list, which isn't bad as public working group lists go. For obvious reasons, in most day to day discussions we consider silence to mean assent as that is the most practical approach.

But the rechartering discussion is not under that rule. It's important that you make your voice heard as the conclusion we come to will decide the overall orientation for the group over the next couple of years.

It doesn't matter if it's just to say +1 or -1. It doesn't matter if your sole concern is a small nit with an obscure corner of the charter. It doesn't matter if you work for a W3C member or not, you're the community no matter what. And you don't have to speak for your employer, personal input is more than welcome (simply say so).

It does, however, matter that you speak your mind. As I said in http://berjon.com/blog/2011/02/a-new-dap.html, the only rule is that if you provide no feedback now but are later heard complaining you'll owe the group a round of beer. And we can drink a lot of beer, so you'd better keep those comments coming!
