Hi, this is just a friendly reminder that this still needs doing.
(as far as I know, anyway.)

You need TimBL's approval to create the new top-level area
http://www.w3.org/DTD/ .

The support teams are available as webreq@w3.org and syreq@w3.org
we all give higher priority to requests sent to these mailing lists.

In that case that would be a request to webreq@w3.org

To create a top level directory under pub/WWW we have to follow the
procedure detailed at
and also in the Team GuideBook

This procedure involves the acknowlegdment of TimBL and the
update of the Owners database


PS: I am going on vacation tonight but Pierre will followup, just use
