Dear Jeanne

thanks for the update

good to see a plan ahead, I ll aim to contribute when possible to this
interesting work

Skimmed through your mail and links, Just a couple of points:
> First, we will be resuming the meetings for the W3C eGov Interest Group.
> Based on your responses to the survey, we will have a meeting every two

what survey? - could find no link or is it an older one?

1. the link to definition, does not redirect to a definition , as far
as I can see at my end
(but good that there is a plan to evaluate the definition)

2. Any meaningful discussion, for example to address mechanics and
value proposition
is constrained (ontologically) by the definitions adopted, therefore I
must insist on the suggestion that we need to agree with a definition
first, and the definition should be
'valid'  and functional to the purpose of e-government in the true sense.

3. define some general vocabulary. Again, this is a recurring thing,
but the terminology/concepts that we adopt are likely to shape
discourse. for example, not just the definition of egov.

For example, I do not object to the word  'citizenry' , but I wonder
if we all use it in the same way. In the light of
modern and democratic constitutions that eGov emanates from (from what
I understand)  citizens are sovereign , therefore citizenry can be a
synonym of sovereignty Is this what is intended as 'citizenry' in the

A bit nitpicking perhaps, but thats what i understand you are
soliciting as feedback,

Thank you, best
