I am forwarding this for the benefit of those who read www-tag but not 
public-html.  I see Larry raising two issues:

1. Versioning in particular
2. "There are other TAG items also relating to reviewing HTML."

Larry writes:

To level set with the TAG community before interacting with Sam on these 
issues, my view of the current Tag status is:  we are indeed discussing 
issues relating to versioning, we have indeed discussed a range of other 
issues that may relate to HTML, and we are attempting a more careful 
reading of the HTML 5 draft.

At this point, I don't >think< the TAG has agreed on any specific points 
that we want to communicate to the HTML WG (TAG members, please correct me 
if I'm wrong.)  Obviously, I will be pleased to coordinate with Sam as 
Larry suggests, both to convey any conclusions the TAG might reach, to see 
if there are other ways we might be helpful, and also to better understand 
scheduling constraints on the HTML side (Sam and I did chat briefly by 
phone last week, so I think I have an informal understanding of where 
things stand.)

I will include discussion of Larry's note in the agenda for this week's 
TAG teleconference.

Thank you.

Noah

Sam,

The TAG activity on Versioning was documented in
http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2009/sum07.html

" A framework for evaluation of language versioning mechanisms, 
with particular focus on Version indicators such as DOCTYPE
 declarations."

which is noted as TAG issue 41: 

http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/group/track/issues/41

There are other TAG items also relating to reviewing HTML.

I suggest you, Sam, coordinate directly with Noah
Mendelsohn as TAG chair to establish scope and coordination.

Thanks!

Larry

Larry, since April you have been reporting back on the TAG's work on 
versioning wrt HTML.  At this time, I would like to close that action 
item.  If you believe that this work will result in a tangible set of 
requirements and/or proposal, I would like to open a separate action 
item on that, and would like to know what target date you would like for 
that action.
