aloha, chris!

to facillitate asynchronous collaboration, would it be possible
to use the Forms wiki so that people can comment on drafts, 
create new ones, and spark discussion?

it seems more reasonable than having all 6 of us drafting a 
different document -- you've set the table, and it is up to 
us to provide the food; too many cooks may spoil the broth,
but there are only 6 of us, so i think this might be the 
best approach -- those who are motivated can create personal
drafts, which can be contrasted and compared, until compromise
is reached...

or, we could always do it via email, but a wiki is easier to 
data mine,

gregory.

Subject: Please construct a task force charter

> Hello public-forms-tf,

> Now that both HTML and Forms WGs have nominated their task force 
> representatives, the next thing is to get a charter together.

> There are useful bits of wording in the Forms and the HTML WG charters:

> http://www.w3.org/2007/03/forms-charter
> 
> the directors decision had an 'architectural vision' document 
> and a 'process comments' document, both have useful text and guidance:
> http://www.w3.org/2007/03/vision
> http://www.w3.org/2007/03/html-forms-process-public
