P3P Working Group members,

First, I wanted to let you all know that I am back from maternity leave 
and have completed my move from New Jersey to Pittsburgh. I have joined 
the faculty of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon 
University (new contact info below).

Second, I wanted to let you all know that I will resume chairing the 
P3P working group meetings with our next conference call on January 28.

Finally, I want to remind you all of the schedule of deliverables in 
our charter 
http://www.w3.org/P3P/Group/Specification/1.1/01-spec-charter.html and 
let you know how I plan to move forward.

According to our charter we should have published complete working 
drafts in November and should be publishing last call drafts in January 
so that we are on track for CR in February and PR in April. We are a 
little behind schedule, but not terribly so. From the beginning, the 
idea behind this working group was to pick the low hanging fruit and 
get done as much as we could in a 16 month time frame. Anything that 
can't be accomplished in that time frame will have to wait for W3C to 
charter a working group for the next version of P3P (interest and 
resources permitting). So, the time has come to focus on what remaining 
items we can get done in P3P1.1 and put the rest aside.

Rigo is hoping to have an edited P3P 1.1 working draft with all the 
changes the working group has approved so far ready by the end of this 
month. I am working with Rigo to update buzilla and figure out where 
things stand. If you are a taskforce chair, I would appreciate it if 
you could send email to the working group by the end of the week 
summarizing the current status of your taskforce's work, what 
additional work you think is realistic to accomplish in the next month, 
and any issues you need the full working group to resolve before moving 
forward. If you are not a taskforce chair but have been assigned a 
major action item, please do likewise.

I would like to get *complete* drafts of all proposed additions/changes 
to the specification no later than February 13. By complete, I mean 
something that is fully fleshed out such that it can be put in the spec 
more or less as-is if the working group decides they like it. We will 
then consider each of these proposals and decide whether we want to 
accept the proposal as-is or with changes, or whether we think the idea 
should wait for another version of P3P. You are of course welcome to 
send us proposals earlier than February 13, or to post incomplete 
proposals before February 13 so that you can get feedback on early 
drafts. Any pending issue for which we do not have a complete draft by 
February 13 will not be addressed in P3P 1.1. So if there is something 
you care about, please see to it that you get a proposal in.

Our next call will be on Wednesday, January 28 at the usual time and 
place. Please let me know if you have any items you would like me to 
schedule for the agenda.

Thanks!

Lorrie
