Subject: XML Activity Approved

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

W3C is pleased to announce the renewal of the XML Activity and
the Working Groups and Interest Groups within it:

Information about review responses appears below. The Activity is
re-chartered through 31 Jan 2011, and expected to consume 2 FTE
in staff resources (a very small increase from the current 1.95).
The Activity Proposal includes links to the approved charters:

A Call for Participation will be sent separately.

This announcement refers to the W3C Process Document section 5
"Activities" [1].

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Philipp Hoschka, Ubiquitous Web Domain Lead, and
Liam Quin, XML Activity Lead;
Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications

Responses to Member Input

We appreciate the Membership's input to the Activity Proposal [2]
of February 2009.  The vast majority of commenters suggested
that the group be approved with no changes. One Member responded
that Activity Proposal be approved with minor changes, including
correcting some errors with dates, and these were resolved with
the Member and accepted where possible.  There was also a question
about the continued viability of the XSL-FO subgroup; we are
monitoring the situation and hoping for increased participation
later in the year.

One Member requested substantive modifications, firstly to dates and
timelines (which we accepted and made) and secondly to propose a
new work item; the Member agreed to take the work item directly
to the relevant Working Group.

A more formal disposition of comments can be found at [3].
