Silvia,

thank you so much.  It's great to have a document to work on.

So, friends, a good thanksgiving to those in the US and  to work!

We have this document, and the Leanback Player Review is a great starting point for an authoring guide (IMHO) (it's linked from the Wiki http://www.w3.org/community/texttracks/wiki/Main_Page).  The Wiki also has a list of deliverables.  Can we start collecting 'to-do's -- bugs, features we need and aren't sure are there, and so on?
