Re: attention -- WG approval of 1.0 strategy

Attention:  Don, Benoit (,Chris)

Of the 4 absentees at the last telecon, only Dieter has responded ("yes") 
to the list so far.  We need to be able to document WG approval of our 
chosen 1.0 strategy, because our Charter gives us the discretion to either 
publish WebCGM 1.0 Third Release or not.

Therefore, Don and Benoit at least, please reply (to list) with your 
approval.  Or your disapproval, if that is the case (and give 
reasons).  Chris's input would also be very welcome, of course.

To summarize the below-linked minutes, our recommended strategy is to get 
4-week W3C/public review and publish the approved 1.0 errata document, but 
to skip the hassle of republishing an entire new WebCGM 1.0 Third Release 
document (Edited Recommendation).
