### start 2nd draft ###

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

	* QA Framework:  Introduction (Intro)
	* QA Framework:  Operational Guidelines (OpsGL)
	* QA Framework:  Specification Guidelines (SpecGL)

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.  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 groups commit to providing feedback by 
March 14th.

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

* Comm (esp. SpecGL)
* Legal (esp. OpsGL)
* W3C Process (esp. Intro, OpsGL)

Please reply and let us know whether you will be able to review the 
documents once they have been published, and whether you are able to 
complete the review by March 14th.  Unless we have indicated otherwise, we 
would like you to look at all three specs.  If you want to or are able to 
only commit to a subset, please let us know.

We will provide a convenient review form for each spec.  An incomplete 
draft form can be seen at [3].  The finished forms will be available by 
start of Last Call review (10-feb).

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