If you're reading this, you're a member of the Do-Not-Track Community  
Group public mailing list (note that the group actually has 4  
different lists).

This CG, of course, is adjunct to the actual Tracking Protection  
Working Group (TPWG).

I'm in the process of informing others who have expressed interest in  

There will be a little bit more housekeeping necessary to really get  
the group and mailing list going, but for now I wanted to make sure  
everyone knows about the two "strawman" documents that are currently  
being discussed by the TPWG (second in-person meeting on Monday in  
Santa Clara).

These documents were constructed by TPWG editors, and URLs are provided.
