The EPUB 3 Community Group had its first teleconference on May 4, with
25 participants. We all talked about our backgrounds and goals for the
group, and how we plan to work together. Given our diverse goals, it
makes sense to form several task forces. We currently envision six
task forces:

1. EPUB 3 Maintenance
2. Accessibility
3. EPUB for Education
4. Rendering
5. Testing and Validation
6. ISO Certification

Each of these would determine their own methods of working, but the
entire group would share an email list and have monthly

Some interesting issues were raised during the meeting, including the
need for more resources for EPUBCheck, and questions about how we
should maintain older versions of EPUB.

We have created a Wiki for the CG at https://github.com/w3c/pub-cg/wiki

Here you can sign up for a task force. Note we will need to add you as
a contributor in order to edit the wiki. For this you will need a
GitHub account (see Ivan's introduction to GitHub at
Then just comment on our "practice" issue
https://github.com/w3c/pub-cg/issues/1 and I'll add you.

We will decide on the time and date for the next teleconference via a
Doodle poll, at https://doodle.com/poll/y9kwvidqg99whskw. I'll also
send a separate email about this.

Thanks very much,

Dave Cramer, co-chair
