Hi all,

As mentioned in the minutes of the Chairs call last week [1] and again  
at the Group call today, Chairs and me are taking ownership of the  
document to move it forward and welcoming more authors.

I've moved the text from the wiki to a more stable document at [2]  
that is already constantly evolving and can be edited by the three of  
us for now. I will be integrating content and comments and give also  
editing access as needed to those interested in contributing.

Current plan and deadlines:
  * Early Editor's draft: 9 Feb
  * Compilation of content for the final
    First Public Working Draft (FPWD): 28 Feb [3]
  * Public release of FPWD: before the F2F

We will be editing the Note and authoring some sections, but would  
prefer not to do so alone since we know your expertise could help to  
improve the document. You can find below a list of the main sections  
of the document and main authors assigned to it so far.

This call is open to interested Group Members. So if you are  
interested and can commit some content before the deadlines, please  
say so *asap* by contacting the main author and/or sending mail to the  
mailing list. We may also contact separately some of you that we  
believe should contribute to a given section (and try to convince you  
to do so!)

Discussion about any of the topics in the mailing list is also much  
appreciated, e.g. what would you expect the document to say about  
issue X?
