Hi all,

In preparation for our call today, I wanted to introduce my thoughts
about how we should make progress based on the ideas voiced so far.

I will be looking at distributing action items (first on the call, and
by mail for the remaining ones) to people to develop more detailed
action plan.

These action plans should describe what W3C needs to do on the said
topic to change significantly the landscape; I've described before the
type of actions one could easily imagine, e.g. new working groups,
accelerated technical development in existing groups, workshops, dev rel
campaign, process or policies changes.

My expectation is that developing an action plan would need to select
the right kind of actions, and contact the relevant stakeholders to
determine whether they agree this is a problem that needs solving, and
if the said action plan is likely to have an impact.

In other words, doing the action plan is not just coming up with an
idea, but trying to get as much confidence as possible that this is a
reasonable and useful plan. While I expect action plans to be assigned
to individuals in the task force, the whole task force will be there to
help, e.g. find the right contacts, define the relevant stakeholders,

Once we have collected all the action plans (which I'm hoping we do over
the course of May), we will need to prioritize them.
