Hi DPUB IG Folks,

We are making good progress on the Publishing WG Charter, and we have
nothing controversial pending right now, so we'll cancel the call next
Monday (the 27th).

It's likely we'll have the call on April 3rd -- Ivan will make that
decision and either send out an agenda or cancelation notice next week (I'm
on vacation, but will be back Monday the 3rd).

We had good attendance at the DPUB Business Group inaugural meeting in
London, but there is certainly room for additional participation: feel
encouraged to join at: https://www.w3.org/community/publishingbg/

Also, the EPUB3 Community Group now has 94 members (wow!) and work should
be kicking off there shortly.  Feel free to join the (large) party at:
https://www.w3.org/community/epub3/

We had good participation in the poll

related to the first face-to-face for the soon-to-be-formed Publishing
Working Group -- the results from the 18 replies are as follows:

   - 22% -- Yes, either NYC or Paris
   - 28% -- Yes, NYC only
   - 22% -- Yes, either NYC or Paris, but prefer NYC
   - 17% -- Yes, either NYC or Paris, but prefer Paris
   - 11% -- No

So, NYC wins for the June 23rd and 24th dates.

I'd advice not yet making flight arrangements, as in order to really
confirm these dates, we'll need to get our Charter up for a vote two months
earlier -- the target being before the AC meeting in Beijing April
23rd-25th (so less than a month from now).  I think it's likely we'll make
that schedule, so it's likely the F-to-F will be in NYC on June 23rd & 24th.

And lastly, FYI, "MITRE Corporation has nominated Dorian Voegeli to Digital
Publishing Interest Group" so we'll hopefully have a new member on our next
call.

Best,
   Garth
