Although the wiki is at a URL related to the Indie UI WG, it is actually
bound to the joint task force with Web Events. So is this mailing list
by the way. I don't see value in having separate instances specific to
the Indie UI WG in this case. But I put them in the "WG space" because
they had to go somewhere, and they do function for the WG even though
they're for the TF.

I've been meaning to create / improve a tool for my various WGs to
automatically detect and index meeting minutes. But I've never quite
gotten around to it. Putting something like Art suggests in the wiki is
a good second alternative. But I wouldn't want sole responsibility for
keeping it up to date (which tends to happen). If people want this and
are willing to take joint responsibility for keeping it current, that's
