Dear chairs, all,

Could you please reserve a slot in the next teleconf for me? I would  
like to discuss the findings of my student and also the feedback from  
the Webapps group with the participants regarding our WebIDL  
specification. The main problem is, that we are using Arrays in our  
specification - see attached mail. The WebIDL discussion about Arrays  
is ongoing since October 2009. I will also reflect relevant parts of  
the discussion with the Webapps group to our mailing list. From my  
point of view, we have to avoid the use of Arrays in our API  
specification to be consistent to the WebIDL specification in future  
(and therefore independent to the outcome of their discussion).
