The Uncertainty Reasoning for the World Wide Web Incubator Group was  
approved and announced on 5 March 2007.  Those of you on this list  
have already joined the XG and were cc'd on a targeted Call for  
Participation that I sent out a few hours ago.  That CfP went to  
people who had participated in the URSW workshop and others who had  
expressed interest in this work.

In the weeks since the XG started, a small  group of us have been  
making sure we understand the details of the W3C procedures for  
joining the XG, both for W3C Members and for the unusually large  
number of Invited Experts we expect to participate.  The CfP email  
was the result of our understanding and clarifying those processes.   
We are hoping the time spend doing that will speed getting others on  
board.

Within the next few weeks, we are hoping to have identified the  
majority of people who wish to join the XG even if some joining as  
Invited Experts may not have completed the approval process.   At  
that we will schedule an initial telecon to set a work plan and begin  
the work.  With the range of geographic locations represented by our  
Yahoo mailing list, I expect setting times for the phone calls will  
be a challenge, and the schedule for regular calls will also be a  
topic for discussion.

We appreciate your patience as your co-chairs learn the nuts and  
bolts of running a W3C group.  We hope to be doing "real" work shortly.

Ken
