Dependency Review

Another thing we need to do before going to PR is make sure all the
groups on on which we have dependencies have had a chance to review our
LC drafts.     Those groups are listed here:

The review requirement:

        The following information is important to the decision to
        advance a technical report and therefore MUST be publicly
        available:
        ...
                Evidence of wide review and that dependencies with other
                groups have been resolved;   [1]
        
                
Typically this is handled in going to last call as:

        The Chair negotiates the Last Call review schedule with the
        Chairs of groups with dependencies (on chairs@w3.org). Securing
        review commitments before going to Last Call will help ensure
        that your document receives wide review. The suggested way to
        negotiate a last call review schedule is to send a heads-up to
        the Chairs of groups with dependencies, cc'ing chairs@w3.org.
        Several weeks prior to the estimated Last Call start date, the
        Working Group should negotiate schedules with groups where there
        are dependencies.  [2]

People were notified at chairs@w3.org of the Jul 2011 [3] and Jan 2012
[4] LC transitions, but it looks like GSP, Federated Query, and CSV/TSV
slipped through the cracks; plus we have the anticipated additional LC
on Query (if I've got this all straight).

I think the right path forward is to use the LCn publication of Query as
a big LC event to coordinate with all the other groups and properly
negotiate review from the other groups.   We do need their feedback on
record before going to CR or PR.

Also, clearly we're going to need to extend the WG.   In today's
meeting, it would be great to get on the record a show of hands (or even
a resolution) about continuing through the end of the year, if that's
what it takes.
