Hi Gregory -- assuming Steve confirms all's well with the form you
submitted, we'd be glad to have you join as invited expert.  Continuing to
have a focus on accessibility issues for the "backplane" will be a key
theme, as will thinking about relationships with on-going forms work.
Thanks for your interest...Charlie

aloha, steve!

thanks for the quick response -- i'm glad it was easier than it
seemed it would be when i couldn't fill out:

http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/42340/join

which is why i contacted you directly, as instucted in:

http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/42340/instructions#nonmember

i have completed the form at:

http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/1/ieapp/

requesting participation in the app-backplane incubator group; as for
contacting/notifying the chair, i have carbon-copied charles
wiecha on each of my emessages in this thread -- does that suffice?
(if not, charles, you can contact me directly, if you so desire or have
the need)

thank you again for your assistance,
gregory.
