Paul:

Looking through my archives I see that I addressed an email to Michael
Cooper on this point, with cc to you and Michael Smith, back in March.
However, I don't immediately see an email to the list with all the
particulars in one place.

Therefore, let me quote my email from 29 March last. Note that the
context is our decision to publish an FPWD of the HTML-AAM, which is the
successor document. Note also that the "you will work with" reference is
to Michael Cooper.

/begin quote/
Just a quick note that we now have all TF and WG approvals to move
forward with the FPWD of the HTML-AAM.

The HTML-WG decision is here:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2015Mar/0096.html

The PF decision is here:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-pfwg/2015Mar/0234.html

And, the HTML-A11Y TF decision is here:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2015Mar/0054.html

NOTE that the HTML Chairs expect you will work with Mike Smith on this
FPWD as it's a joint HTML & PF publication. I'm cc'ing him to give him a
heads up.

Also note that:

a.)     We have agreement to park the old, unfinished mapping document
as a note, with appropriate added verbiage about not relying on the old
version and pointing folks to the new, and
b.)     We have agreement, including Judy and PLH, to create a redirect
from the old shortname.

The above is recorded at:
