Thanks for taking the time to write up your suggestions, and to send
them again, I missed them the first time around. I think ideally the
eGov effort would be a community group that anyone (w3c member or not)
could join. I don't think this group is in a position to be able to
identify individuals with integrity or ethics. I also think this group
is quite small given it's scope (the Web and government/politics).
However I think you're right that more could be done in the area of
recruiting people to join the group. The big challenge here is
language I think -- is it expected that communication be done in
English? Or should language specific lists be created as needed? I
don't know if this has come up before.

As far as guidelines go, I think the Improving Access to Government
through Better Use of the Web [1] still does a pretty good job. But
perhaps we need to build upon it? Are there gaps that you think need
to be addressed? I agree that there is definitely a need to share case
studies better. This area of the Wiki is particularly vacant [2,3].
Maybe collecting already published examples of effective use of the
Web by government would be a good way to bootstrap it? It seems like
minimally adding the use cases that have come up on telecons would be
a good thing to do.
