Hi,

We (NTT Communications) are also interested in this TF.
I believe that discussing about this area is important for
web and tv service's progress.

> * Goals and deliverables of the TF
> In a first phase, the goal of the TF will be to identify usecases
> for device and content discovery and control in the home network,
> gaps in the existing technologies to address these usecases and
> requirements that specifications need to address in order to cover such
> gaps.
>
>
>
> Another goal for this first phase is also to identify
> - if the requirements can be addressed by one ore more existing W3C WGs, OR
> - if a new WG is required, OR
> - if the work is out of scope for W3C
>
> Deliverables for this first phase are a requirement document that an
> existing or new group can use to begin the specification work.
>
> In a (optional) second phase, the TF can be used to monitor and
> provide feedbacks or new inputs to the WG working on the specification.
>
> * How is the TF work organized?
> - Wiki

> The wiki will be used both to maintain the requirement document draft and

> We may consider having one or more editors to avoid confusion.
>
> - Phone calls
