August is usually a very quite month anyway.

Me, too, but I can understand. I know that many are on vacation.
Kevin and I have been thinking about the Group's work and will send  
some more info soon.
Of course, the communication channels are wide open to everybody, but  
maybe a push from the Chairs could help move thinks forward. Just give  
us a couple days more.

These are all good questions but it's early to have the answers. I  
encourage the Task Force coordinators to speak up.

AFAIR, we already mentioned to Group participants they should talk to  
TF coordinators to make them aware of which TF they'll participate in,  
but I'm not aware of any responses to that call yet; eg. I only see  
updates from very few people to the wiki.

Let's try to revisit this at the next call. I've just added it as a  
topic to the agenda.
