Henri's request is on behalf of himself, not the Working Group. The response to his request could be relevant information for an upcoming Working Group decision however.

As you may be aware, we have an unusual number of seats up for election or re-appointment, and several that are open now. There is some chance (speaking for myself as chair, and not having consulted the rest of the TAG) that it would be of value to get involvement from whoever might be elected/appointed. Also, I am hoping that we will have a chance to bring in Norm Walsh to help us consider this, as he was the chair of the task force.

While there's no hard time constraint, any new information from the TAG would be more useful if it was available in two weeks or so.

Maciej
