Hi Mike,

sorry for not getting back to you earlier, I was AFK.

Yes, we've been looking at your work with excitement. Welcome!

By all means, don't bother with anything too formal, a braindump of your comments in email would be very useful. But the fact that your initial comments were overtaken by events IMHO shows that we ought to synchronise a bit more. For us, having a tight feedback loop with an implementation of the specification being worked on is a big plus as it provides an immediate reality check. Hopefully it can help with the implementation as well since bugs in the specification are then likely to also be bugs in the implementation (plus, it means less documentation to write ;-). So if there's anything we can do to help there, just tell us.

In addition to Richard's questions, I was wondering about read-only vs read-write. I was also curious as to whether you might have thoughts about a similar project for calendaring?
