As part of work towards implementing the plan to combine IDPF with
<http://idpf.org/news/idpf-members-approve-plan-to-combine-with-w3c>W3C
<http://idpf.org/news/idpf-members-approve-plan-to-combine-with-w3c>,
proposed initial charters have been drafted for the anticipated new
W3C Publishing
Business Group
<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HNLmvdNvBbF4vJbkNRBgO5Wc0rDFsuoj0fdVAeLHIsk/pub>
  and W3C EPUB 3 Community Group
<https://docs.google.com/document/d/14dM4JUw9EGSZ8TvZPnVShT1lKhsiag1ctVQXdVxqhN0/pub>
. These drafts were prepared in collaboration with co-chairs of the IDPF EPUB
Working Group <https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/epub-working-group> and
W3C Digital Publishing Interest Group
<https://www.w3.org/dpub/IG/wiki/Main_Page>, together with IDPF and W3C
leadership. They may be further refined, but we would like to solicit
comments now, as input to that process, from all IDPF and W3C members and
others in the publishing community. Note that the intention is only to have
"starter" charters in place at the time the combination is effective
(anticipated to be in January, 2017): once these new groups are operating
they may, and likely will, choose to further revise their charters as part
of establishing their own processes and work plans.
I will be collating incoming comments (these are up for public review, see:
http://idpf.org/news/drafts-charters-of-w3c-publishing-business-group-epub-3-community-group
) but of course discussion is also welcome on these lists.

Thanks,

--Bill
