Interesting feedback. I'll make that a link to an explanation.

> I voted for Jan, and i think that was interpreted by the system as a proposal rather than a one-person vote. i think the vote should be announced on http://groups.google.com/group/unhosted which is the current forum for this group as a community. then people should get a chance to join and vote. say 7 days. it would also be good if some more people would join our group. there are over 300 people in the google mailing list - for the wg to be moderately representative i would say we need at least 10% of those people to also register here. but i think once we publish our standard through this wg, that will pick up quickly.

The checkboxes aren't for voting; they simply assign one or more people as chair(s). The group needs to establish its own process for picking chairs (e.g., voting).

I'll make sure the documentation says this.
