I'm not sure what the resolution is. The minutes show
an agreement in principle, but no details about how
it is to be carried out.

"Resolution 10: We include GET without deprecation. SPEC CHANGE"

Ah... this gives a little more detail...

"Resolution 11: There was too much pushback from the community about
deprecating GET, and we agree to option C UTF-8 encoding. SPEC CHANGE."

I would prefer to review the resolution in the context of
an updated draft.

http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms/ is still dated 18 January 2002;
is there something newer I can look at?

An example of how GET and XForms work together
would probably be enough.
