Hi all,
time to kick the work of the new TFs!

As discussed during TPAC, we have identified 6 areas that the Web&TV  
participants are interested in discussing more in details. In order to  
have a structured (and hopefully constructive) discussion, for each area  
we are going to start a new Task Force with an appointed moderator  
responsible for tracking the ongoing discussion and making sure that each  
TF achieve its goals.


For more details on each TF see our wiki
http://www.w3.org/2011/webtv/wiki/Main_Page#Task_Forces

In the following hours/days each TF moderator will send out a "kick off"  
email that will officially start the TF work, and each TF will discuss how  
to best handle their work. Nevertheless let me give some generic  
recommendations:


* Each TF will have a dedicated page. Some are already there while some  
are being edited by moderators as we speak.
Make sure to monitor them, and make sure to track all  
discussions/proposals in the wiki so that people joining at a later stage  
can easily get up to speed with the work done (see old TFs pages for some  
examples)

* Mailing list: (unless the majority of the group thinks otherwise) we are  
not going to create new mailing lists for each TF, because the traffic on  
the this list is small, because TF participants overlaps and because  
having more MLs is just a major overhead without any real benefit for our  
group. So my recommendation would be to go for using a subject tag in the  
mail you send to the list. The wiki home page already suggest a subject  
tag for each TF. *****Please make sure to always use the correct subject  
tag when sending out emails to this list ***

* Telcos: it is up to each TF to decide if telcos are needed, but it's  
usually better to try and use the mailing list and limit calls. This makes  
easy for everybody to get involved and participate.
