Hi Kobi,

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I've been spending
most of my time this week dealing with discussions related to
issue tracking in the HTML WG and it has left me very little time
for dealing with other things.

I'm very interested in hearing more from you about getting
non-English-speaking developers contributing to the work on HTML5.

I'm Cc'ing Karl Dubost, who's the Web Community Liaison. I know he
will have some insight into this and would like to make sure to
keep him involved in the discussion.

What I think would help us at this point is a brief description
from you of what problems are caused by not having more
involvement from non-English-speaking developers, and also any
ideas you might have for how we might address the problem.

Regards,

  --Mike
