Hi folks,

Microsoft has suggested [1] that the WebAPI group take on the XDR spec as  
a deliverable. (For other administrative reasons, the WebAPI group as a  
whole may have a successor group that is slightly different, but broadly  
would include the same set of deliverables. For now I am assuming that  
there will be a WebAPI group or something recognisably the same thing long  
enough to work on such a spec).

We will therefore hold a survey of Working Group members, to determine how  
much support there is for this. Since this is an administrative matter, it  
is not open to the public under the current charter - we will however  
publish the result (in aggregate form). Because most discussion has taken  
place on teh public list already, and because openness is generally good,  
I encourage people who have anything to add to the discussion to continue  
with the public thread (changing subjects as necesasry please, for people  
who try to follow the archive later.

The rough survey results should be available in about two weeks. Note that  
this will not be a binding vote - it is an attempt to clarify the general  
level of support and help determine the best way forward.
