QAWG,

Here is a draft proposed letter for LC review.  Comments welcome.  We will 
visit this in Monday telecon, then send it Monday.  I have embedded a 
couple of specific questions ("@@").

A couple more questions have come to mind about the review list:

** do we want review by Comm (SpecGL), by Process people (OpsGL), maybe by 
Legal (OpsGL)?  Yes, no, or "informal", i.e., write to them after the fact 
and ask them to comment.

** do we want all reviewers to review all documents?

-Lofton.

### start draft letter ###

The QA Working Group (QAWG) is preparing to publish Last Call Working 
Drafts of these QA Framework documents:

	* QA Framework:  Introduction
	* QA Framework:  Operational Guidelines
	* QA Framework:  Specification Guidelines

These belong to the QA Framework document family, designed to help the W3C 
Working Groups improve all aspects of their quality practices by 
solidifying and extending current quality practices found within the W3C 
(@@keep or toss the latter?@@).  You can find a table of the entire family 
at [1], and a road map for development of the family at [2].

Each of these documents has had at least 3 previously published Working 
Drafts.  All issues have been closed by the QAWG, and the editors are 
preparing the text of the Last Call versions.  The QAWG will formally 
record its resolution for Last Call at its teleconference of February 
3rd.     The Last Call review period is scheduled for February 10th through 
March 14th.

The QAWG welcomes all comments during the Last Call review period, but we 
particularly request that the follow WGs commit to providing feedback by 
March 14th.  (@@should we say instead, "..commit to providing whatever 
feedback they have"?  I have seen it both ways.@@)

* CSS
* DI
* DOM
* I18N
* HTML
* MMI
* P3P
* PF
* UAAG
* Web Ontology
* Web Services
* XML Protocol
* XML Schema
* XQuery

Please let us know whether you will be able to review the documents once 
they has been published, and whether you are able to complete the review by 
March 14th.  (@@should we say, "..if you can't review all of 'em, tell us 
which ones you want to review.."@@)

For your information, the current editors drafts of the three documents -- 
not quite ready for Last Call -- can be seen at [3], [4], and 
[5].  @@should we make these references, to the almost-ready LC 
documents?  I think it helps them to understand what they are being asked 
to agree to.@@

Best Regards,
Karl Dubost, co-chair QAWG
Lofton Henderson, co-chair QAWG
