QAWG,

Monday Feb 23 telecon is about CR issues, in preparation for f2f.  On 
Monday we should at least:

** get owners for more of the issues (=> initial proposals before f2f);
** preview some proposals about QAF Future.

The current (still preliminary) CR issues list is:

[1] http://www.w3.org/QA/WG/2004/02/cr-issues

More work is still needed for cross-referencing and grouping, but all of 
the big conceptual issues and some of the detailed ones about specific GL 
documents are here.  Contents:

** All WebOnt issues, major and minor.
** JC's emailed procedural protests.
** All of JC's critical-8 issues, complete w/ sub-issues, from his 
extensive document [2]
** Bjoern H's missed 5 issues from September
** 3 issues from recent QAWG TA thread.
** issues from LH SpecGL analysis.

It does not have (and ought to have):  SpecGL issues generated during the 
3-4 telecons about SpecGL TAs.  (Anyone volunteer to give me brief 
statements of those?).  We have also decided to queue the few dozen 
GL-specific detailed issues from JC (e.g., ch.4, 5, 7, ...)

Following are the major QAF/QAWG conceptual issues whose resolution will 
probably shape and impact how we deal with many of the detailed issues:

CR-1 through CR-6:  WebOnt (Jim Hendler) QAF conceptual issues.
CR-32, CR-35 through CR-41:  Jeremy Carroll (JC) "critical" issues -- the 
subset for which he expects formal reply.
CR-32, CR-33, CR-34:  emailed procedural protests (issues) from JC.

QA Chairs have done some preliminary discussions, considering these 
comments, QAWG status and available resources (people), etc.  I have 
summarized these discussions and my understanding of QA Chairs consensus 
for dealing with some of the major conceptual issues.  Consider this 
preliminary, as I have not received QA Chairs endorsement that I have got 
it right:

In the issues list [1], we have assigned this ownership so far:

LH:  CR-1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 35, 37, 39, 40
DH:  CR-32, 33, 34

Owners wanted:  CR-2, 38.  (Plus CR-36, 41 -- but see below.)

Actually, owners are wanted for all of 'em that aren't listed 
here.  Volunteers welcome, otherwise we might divide and assign.  I propose 
that GL editors by default take initial ownership of theirs:  LH for Intro, 
LH for Ops, LR and/or DH for Spec (PC/DD for Test, if there are any new ones.)

DH suggests recasting:  CR-36, 38.  (LH doesn't understand -- 
discuss/clarify on Monday.)

Regards,
-Lofton.
