After reviewing the draft minutes, I started a summary [1] (providing at 
least the goals/history/question) and was going to try to take a tenative 
stab at framing a tenative position on the issues to elicit agreement or 
disagreement but got caught on the liability/warranty issue. Since the 
interesting questions, scope of use (at least in part) and redistubution 
(in whole), hang off Kirill's concern there, perhaps he could say more on 
that note?
    1. Warranty and Liabiltiy: While not particularly verbose the
       disclaimers found in the W3C Software and Document Licenses do
       have the approriate/relevant disclaimers.
       Caveat: Kirill Gavrylyuk (Microsoft) stated that he has a concern
       that since these licenses do not provide indemnities, and it's not
       reasonable to expect W3C to do so, he is concerned about possible
       misuse by or threat to customers. Joseph Reagle (W3C) responded
       that the disclaimers are present and it's an organization's choice
       whether they want to distribute the tests (under the W3C license).
