   mjs: let this slide while working on getting plan 2014 adopted
   ... plan is to have a private draft of the poll to the other
   chairs by eod today
   ... if we do create a separate mailing list, it'll still
   require people to be a member of the wg in order to join
   ... will send out an email today

   cwilso: i think it's well understood that people would have to
   be in the wg in order to join the list

   mjs: there was some confusion over this

Decisions this week

   Plan 2014 decision:

     [15] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2012Oct/0105.html

   mjs: chairs declared consensus on plan 2014 with a few
   ... several objections were addressed without changing the
   substance of the decision
   ... leaving html5 or html5.0 naming up to the editors
   ... we didn't want the plan to declare a specific name, leaving
   up to editors (with review by wg)
   ... we agreed with the a11y tf's request to change "technical"
   to "substantive" in the section describing their work and
   ... [gives aria example]
   ... aspects of <hgroup> are widely implemented (parsing
   behavior, ua stylesheet)
   ... clarified so that those portions aren't at risk
   ... master branch for html5.1 is the master branch of the git
   ... we will soon mark issues postponed
   ... the ones that can be addressed in extension specs
   ... we've asked the editors to make another pass through the
   bugs before we move the existing bugs to a non-5.0 component
   ... will only pull in specific bugs to 5.0 after that
   ... wg members should help complete the list of at risk
   ... [task force work statement adjustments]

   daniel: how can i help?

   mjs: giving technical feedback; usually we start with a bug in
   bugzilla, but starting a thread on public-html also works

   <Zakim> adrianba, you wanted to give an update

   adrianba: the tf has been continuing to meet, alternating
