Ok by me.

PS: Following links in the email I find minutes


  and agenda


  but the aren't linked to the document or the group home page.

Removing bits from the URI I find

http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/ is forbidden [?!] whcih serves me right

and there seems to be no overview.html but in docs, now using the CVS  
tool I find


which has no links to the group

by Google tells me http://www.w3.org/XML/Processing/

I assume when published the SOTD will have lots of links as usual to  
the WG.
