Thanks for taking notes last week, Lachlan.

Mike and I might have given the impression that it's
our job to finish up and send out the teleconference
minutes every week, but that's not necessarily the case;
I'm sure anyone in the WG can learn to produce
acceptable minutes.

The traditional tools and techniques are
documented in
  scribe 101
  http://www.w3.org/2008/04/scribe.html

I just linked that from http://www.w3.org/html/wg/#telcon

It concludes with "Once the record has been approved by the
Group, send a text version of the record to the Group list."
but I don't think our group is interested in any formal
minutes approval ritual; Sam an I are happy for scribes to send
directly to public-html-wg-announce@w3.org .

<DanC> in some groups, the chair checks the minutes every week. I doubt
we want to do that.
<DanC> So my preference is that the scribe is the only person in the
critical path for getting the minutes out
<rubys1> no objections here


So I added a checkbox to the survey:

  HTML WG tasks
  http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/40318/tasks83/

(I also extended the duration for another year)

If you're willing to serve as scribe once in a while,
please check the "serve as scribe for teleconferences" box.

If we have half a dozen or a dozen people willing to
do this, that should work fine.

Otherwise, I'll probably change the group norms to
just let raw IRC logs serve as minutes or something.
