Subject: XML Activity Proposal (Call for Review)

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

This is a Call for Review of a revised XML Activity.

The XML Activity will continue to work on the Extensible Markup  
Language and related specifications. Primary work products will be new  
and revised specifications and notes on relevant topics. Over the two  
years of this chartered period, the XML Activity will continue current  
work on XML itself and the closely-related specifications, as well as  
Efficient XML Interchange, the XML Processing Model, XML Query, XML  
Query Update, Full Text, XSLT (including Streaming Transformations and  
also JSON interchange), XML Print and layout and XML Schema. Since the  
last rechartering, some work was completed; the SML Working Group was  
closed, and the XML Processing Model (XProc) Working Group published  
its primary deliverable and is now mainly in maintenance mode, and  
considering requirements for a new version.

No major new areas of work are introduced in this proposal. The XML  
Query and XSLT Working Groups have decided to rationalize their  
version numbers, and are therefore working on XSLT 3.0, XQuery 3.0,  
XPath 3.0, XQueryX 3.0 and so forth, rather than the previous  
confusing mix of 2.1 and 1.1 version numbers.

This Activity Proposal also splits the XSL Working Group into two  
separate groups, XSLT and XML Print and Layout. The XSLT Working Group  
has for many years operated as if it were two separate groups in most  
respects, and this change will improve openness and accountability.

Please review the Activity Proposal:

and charters:

   Efficient XML Interchange WG

   XML Processing WG:

   XML Core WG:

   XML Query WG:

   XML Schema WG:


   XML Print and Page Layout Working Group

   XML Coordination Group:

and indicate your support using this online form:

The deadline for responses is 23:59, Boston time on 2011-03-07. The  
proposed staff allocation for this Working Group is 1.25 FTE.

The charters of the current groups are hereby extended until  
2011-04-01 to allow for the review and post-review comment period.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact  
Liam Quin <liam@w3.org>.

This Activity Proposal follows section 5 of the W3C Process Document:
