   aloha! one question: why wasn't the joint meeting
more broadly/openly announced? there was no one in
the XHTML2 WG that had been informed (save, apparently,
for StevenP, but he's unavailable for meetings this
week) there was also a list of participants from PF,
logged in the minutes archived at: http://www.w3.org/2007/10/10-pf-minutes.html
who were supposed to be part of the call, but no one
on the list seems to have been informed of the call
-- and no one other than SteveP or RichS working within
the XHTML2 WG was even aware that there was a call,
so the posting of the minutes took those of us in
the #xhtml channel quite by surprise Al asked Rich,
quote Who is going to tell XHTML2 WG? unquote many
in the XHTML2 WG are wondering why they were not told
before-hand -- SteveP was not available to chair the
XHTML2 WG meeting today, so there was time for WG
participants to communicate via IRC, and the announcement
of a meeting and a proposed solution took everyone
by surprise... it is important that we keep the lines
of communication to all stake-holders as open as possible
-- was this a breakdown or an executive decision?
