The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'Publish HTML 5
update with or without warnings?' (HTML Working Group) for John Foliot.



---------------------------------
Publish draft without warnings?
----
Do you support publishing this Editor's draft (i.e., without 
the additional warnings, also a.k.a. Ian's draft) as a Working Draft at
this time?



 * ( ) Yes
 * (x) No

Comments (or a URI pointing to your comments): 
Given that there is no technical differences between the 2 competing
documents at this time, I believe more information over-all is better than
less.  While we are only talking about a Working Draft here, the reality is
that developers are using this as a basis for production class (or near
production class) sites today, and providing those content creators with as
much info as possible can only be good.




---------------------------------
Publish draft with warnings?
----
Do you support publishing this Editor's draft (i.e., with 
additional warnings, also a.k.a. Manu's draft) as a Working Draft at this
time?
In order to provide more useful feedback regarding which warning text
should not be considered controversial and thus, should be removed,
please follow the suggestions outlined in this email.


 * (x) Yes
 * ( ) No

Comments (or a URI pointing to your comments): 
It is my hope that moving forward, warnings or advisories might also note
affected W3C Working Groups outside of HTML WG; ideally with some form of
indication of communications or requests for feedback.




---------------------------------
What to publish?
----
Given that these documents differ only in the presence or absence of
warnings, how would you like the results of the poll to be interpreted?



 * ( ) I would prefer to publish all Editor's Drafts that have majority
approval as Working Drafts.
 * (x) I prefer to publish only the one Editor's Draft receiving the most
votes as a Working Draft.

Comments (or a URI pointing to your comments): 
If there were technical differences between the 2 documents, my answer
would likely have been very different.  Since I currently see the "Manu's
Draft" version as simply an enhanced copy of the work produced by Ian I see
no benefit in making both available as Working Drafts.
