Hi Ashok,

Yes, per W3C Document License [1] it is possible to publish the survey  
in a magazine.  There is also a relevant FAQ entry [2] that might help.

Also, I noticed that the survey is missing the W3C copyright  
statement, per XG Pub rules [3].  Can you please add the W3C copyright  
statement to the survey?  Once you have done it, the magazine could  
use the survey published on w3.org, making sure to follow the W3C  
Document License [1].

Finally, should the magazine want to make any changes on the text of  
the survey before publishing it, they would need a license from W3C to  
do so.  This can be easily obtained by contacting Rigo Wenning, W3C  
Counsel (cc'ed here).

Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further help.

Best,
Mauro
