Dear Chairs, dear XML Schema WG,

I'm writing to remind you that we have asked, on more than one occasion, 
that all technical matters directed towards us are sent to the w3c-i18n-ig 
list, *not* to the w3c-i18n-wg list.  The latter is used for procedural 
matters only.

Thank you,
Misha Wolf
W3C I18N WG Chair
