That's a reasonable request; I'm sure a lot of people are hesitant
to use the inboxes of ~300 people to get up to speed.

IRC is one of the better options at this point; it's far from perfect,
but it often gets the job done. The WG homepage has some pointers...
"Some participants supplement these with IRC discussion in the #html-wg 
channel on irc.w3.org, port 6665, with public logs and an informal 
directory with names and timezones."

I'm interested in having someone present HTML5, or the differences
between HTML4 and HTML5, in a teleconference. The idea got
a little support support when I brought it up in IRC, but
it also got some resistance, so I haven't pursued it very actively.
