no need for WG telecon?

All --

I see no business needing WG attention right now.  If any of you think we 
should convene for some topic, let me know (I'm available.)

Status summary:  We are in "wait" mode until certain steps are completed in 
OASIS.  In particular, the MoU specifies that the OASIS review and 
confirmation (or alteration) of W3C changes should happen with timing such 
that any OASIS-generated changes can enter W3C before PR approval.

The OASIS 15-day public review of the W3C "final" (CR-exit) document is in 
progress.  It will finish on 9th December.  No comments or changes are 

Outlook:  the OASIS WebCGM TC had hoped that OS ballot could happen in 
January, so that final joint publication could happen in 
February.  Unfortunately, there are yet some delays built into the Process, 
staff delays in getting the present review started, etc.  Long story short, 
it is likely that the OASIS TC will miss a process-defined mid-December 
deadline, and the default consequence is that the OS ballot would not 
happen till February, and simultaneous publication not until March.

(The TC is still trying to avoid this extra dead month -- tbd.)



p.s. It may be useful for Thierry and possibly Philippe to confer with me, 
to ascertain whether this extra month's delay causes any process problems 
within W3C.  I don't see any issues, other than to work out the timing of 
the PR review period, after we are certain about the OASIS timing.  It is 
awkward to delay publication after the finish of PR, but we did the same 
thing for WebCGM 2.0 for a shorter period.
