Subject: XML Activity Proposal Approved

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

In response to the 7 February 2011 Call for Review [1] of the XML
Activity Proposal [2], charters for these existing groups have been

 Efficient XML Interchange Working Group

 XML Processing Model Working Group

 XML Coordination Group

 XML Core Working Group

 XML Query Working Group

 XML Schema Working Group

 XSLT Working Group (formerly the XSL Working Group)

In addition, the XSL-FO work on formatting and layout has been split off
from the XSL Working Group into a new Working Group, with the same
deliverables and mandates as when it was part of the XSL Working Group:

 XML Print and Page Layout Working Group

There were no Formal Objections. All the Members who responded to the
Call for Review supported the proposal to continue the XML Activity with
two abstentions. One Member urged that we focus on maintenance of
current specifications and limit investment in new work to that for
which significant customer demand can be demonstrated.  W3C is not
planning substantive work on XML itself at this time and would not do so
without further consultation with Members and, where appropriate, with
the wider public.

The formal disposition of comments is available:

Calls for Participation will be issued separately.

This announcement follows section 8.1.2 of the W3C Process Document:

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