Forms WG Status

From: John Boyer <boyerj@ca.ibm.com>

1) The working group awaits a response to this email about the charters:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-forms/2007Jul/0021.html

Also, it seems a dependency on the XHTML2 WG is missing from the charter.

2) The Forms Joint Task Force participants are
Sebastian Schnitzenbaumer (lead)
Mark Birbeck
Nick van Den Bleeken

Their interest is in defining simplifications of XForms 1.2, and they will 
coordinate with the Forms Joint Task Force members from the HTML WG as it 
seeks to map HTML forms onto XForms.

3) The request to transition XForms 1.0 Third Edition to Proposed Edited 
Recommendation has been sent.

Chris Lilley agreed to be acting team contact for the transition meeting 
due to Steven's upcoming vacation.
This was necessary due to my own vacation following Steven's, which would 
have produced an undue delay.
It also makes sense since Chris, as domain lead, will also be chairing the 
transition meeting.

4) XForms 1.1 last call issue processing proceeds. 

54 issues implemented as spec changes, 
14 approved but awaiting implementation in the spec, 
16 have proposed resolutions awaiting group approval, 
3 are suspended due to being requests for features already in "future 
features"
5 are closed (not accepted)
24 are closed (in trash due to admin reasons)

46 are open and await consideration by the working group
2 have been sent back to the commenters for further feedback

So, in total 100 issues are at or near completion, 16 are in an advanced 
state, and 50 are outstanding.
