Hi Thierry,

Thanks for all of this information.  I have a couple of questions, embedded

Do you have any estimate of how long these steps will take, altogether?

And one more question...

How long is this review?  I don't see any duration mentioned in those 
Process sections.

I'm guessing that we should change the estimated start date for the 
re-chartered WG in the draft Charter -- 15 January doesn't seem likely now.

By the way, for the benefit of other WG-list subscribers, here [2] is a 
version of the draft Charter that integrates all of the previous 
WG-approved changes with the updates Thierry put into the "published" 
version [1] (above).


Cheers & Happy New Year,
