I can't make today's meeting. Sorry.

I was asked a few weeks back to write a note with comments I made about who is
listed on our specs as a contributor.
Here it is:

I believe the WS I18n requirements spec and our other specs, should reflect at
least the active working group members as contributors. I do acknowledge for
some documents a significant amount of the writing may come from just one
person.
However, to the extent that we each invest time in reviewing, commenting and
discussing these docs, I think members should be recognized. Our corporate
sponsors that make our time available should be recognized for doing so.
The recognition is useful to the participants as well when it comes time to
lobby for continued funding and support.

I think it would be a mistake for the W3C to not follow such a policy as it
increases the difficulty of lobbying for continued membership. It is low cost
and it is fair to all parties. I have no objections with singling out major
contributors as such.
