Dear www-qa members and former QA WG members,

     (when there's a "Todo? [name]?" below, Please could you answer?  
Thanks)

I would like we start a brainstorming on the things we would like to  
work on in the future. It will help to define how will work together.

IMPORTANT:
     Everyone can participate or add a comment
     to this brainstorming. Don't be afraid to
     suggest something or give an idea even very
     simple.

For example, some people on the list might be able to participate only

     - wiki
     - mail
     - mail + IRC
     - mail + IRC + teleconferences
     - mail + IRC + teleconferences + meeting (F2F)

By experience, I know that small projects work a lot better than big  
projects and if too big, dividing the project in small units make it  
a lot easier to move forward. Working in pair helps a lot to achieve  
a good work with tight deadlines too.

On the agenda for now, there is:

* W3C Validators

     The work is mainly happening on public-qa-dev and chaired by  
Olivier Théreaux.
     Todo? Olivier?

* Tools Development

     What's missing? What would be cool? What would be helpful? Don't  
forget, think small.

* Review of specifications

     Needed? how do we organise it?
     Some people on the list would like to join?


* QA Library

     Articles, Education and Outreach
     Ideas? Desires?

* The QA Handbook

help to solve this, that would be cool.
