Hello WebFonts WGers,

With this email I would like to officially start the new chapter of the WG activities. As you all know, the new WG charter [1] has been approved adding new deliverables and a new work item. Following this, we had a meeting at the W3C TPAC last week [2] where we discussed our first deliverable - the evaluation report for a technology proposed as part of the future WOFF 2.0 format [3].

In order to continue the momentum and to progress quickly with the evaluation report, I would like to suggest that we should resume our regularly scheduled conference calls starting tomorrow, Nov. 7 at

US West Coast - 13:00
US East Coast - 16:00
Central Europe - 22:00
Japan - 06:00 (next day)
