Ah. That's a better source for information. What I did was:

  1) Google for "forms working group"
  2) Landed on http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/ (which seems legit)
  3) Clicked on that very fist sentence "The Forms working group is chartered..."
  4) Which brought me to http://www.w3.org/2007/03/forms-charter.html

So I guess it's a case of the group's home page being out of date :)

Right, which works great if you got the right charter in the first place. So second suggestion: update old charters to indicate that they are dead. What we have for TR works nicely, I'd like to suggest that we do the same thing for charters.

Exactly as above with http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/ and http://www.w3.org/2008/01/timed-text-wg.html!
