Dear all,

As you may know, this WG uses a different system for converting the IRC 
log into minutes than is used by other WGs. We've been using a script 
written by Sandro Hawke called CommonScribe which has a number of 
advantages but:

- Sandro is no longer maintaining it;
- the output from today's meeting is really weird (it's now decided that 
the name hadleybeeman is unknown in the way that Newton was unrecognised 
for no reason anyone could work out for a long time)
- we're now the only WG using CommonScribe.

So it seems we should use the same system as everyone else which is the 
one you get by typing RRSAgent, draft minutes at the end of the meeting. 
This puts the minutes in that months' directory on w3.org.

I've done this today as you can see at

@Chairs - I've made the change in the annotations of today's agenda so 
next week when you copy and paste as usual, don't be surprised by the 
change in URL format for the minutes,

The big loss from this is that only W3 Team can edit the minutes but 
since I've been the only one editing the minutes anyway that's no big 
change :-)
