Hi Art,

Please don't assume I know how the w3c works. I'm not subscribed to the
public-html list and honestly don't have  a good understanding of which list
is for what. I consider the feature set provided in by the Application Cache
to harmonize with other topics discussed on the public-webapps list, so it
seemed like the natural place to discuss it. Actually Louis-Rémi started the
thread to which I responded.

Interesting question about moving the Offline Web Applications out of HTML5
to a new home. I doesn't matter to me where this is spec'd or discussed so
much, what matters is that progress is made as I think it's clear there is
demand for "more" in this area. I have not been party to any discussions
about relocating the Offline WebApps part of the HTML5 spec. Since you
asked, I'm guessing you think that could help with making faster progress?

-Michael
