Oops, yes of course.

Done (and 3GPP and OASIS).

I agree that it looks redundant given that so many are Public.

The point being made here (given that this is the first time HCG will be chartered as Public) *is* that the vast majority of groups coordinated are Public.

(And, WebApps is listed as public, since I pasted in your suggested text and they weren't listed before).

AB>  5. Change the following text in the Communication section as

Yup, that text was carried over from the old charter. Good catch, now fixed.

Thanks for your review, Art.
