Dear XML Core WG members,

Our current charter [1] expires a week from today.

Please see the recent email below and the document it references.

Our current list of deliverables consists of XML 1.0 6th Edition
and XInclude 1.1 Recommendation.

I doubt we are ever going to produce XML 1.0 6th Edition.

According to the new policy (which I believe officially goes into
effect June 18), we would not be able to advance XInclude 1.1 after
our charter ends (or after June 18 perhaps).

I believe we should try to publish the XInclude 1.1 CR asap. However,
even if we do, we would not be able to publish the Recommendation
until we are rechartered or granted an extension, and I don't know
the chances of that happening.

I would like to have our telcon tomorrow to discuss these issues.

W3M has adopted, with encouragement of the Advisory Board and at the
delegation of the Director, some more specific practices to review
Working Group and Interest Group progress prior to their charter end dates.

The agreed policy [1] sets specific Team schedules for developing a
rechartering or extension proposal or closing a Group if it will not
have completed its deliverables prior to the expiration of the current
charter.  We expect to engage the Group in developing these plans as is
the current practice; the policy establishes a timeline for the discussion.

This policy goes fully into effect on June 18.

Working Group chairs are encouraged to familiarize themselves with
this new practice as one element in particular may have direct impact:
W3C policy is to deny TR publications for a Group if the Group
no longer has an active charter.  Groups who expect to update a TR
document as supporting evidence for a charter extension will need to
have completed that update within the current charter period.
