Thanks for sending these out.

With respect to the consensus document, 2 minor comments:

In the item "consensus: Education and Outreach should include:"

1) The 4th item should read "Make the W3C Site appealing..."
the word site is left off. 
The W3C may be appealing in its own way.

Also "a return site with i18n content" should probably read something
like "and become a frequently returned to site for i18n content".


2) On the next bullet "eat your own dog food". Being international
folks, perhaps we shouldn't use this metaphor as it is an idiom that may
not be understood well internationally. Perhaps say something like "We
should endeavor to follow our own guidelines as much as possible as
proof of their usability and for demonstration purposes."


It was an effective meeting. My thanks to the chair and host and he
other participants.
