XForms 1.1 Proposed Recommendation Publication Request

Dear Forms Working Group,

It is a great pleasure to inform you that XForms 1.1 was approved for 
advancement to proposed recommendation.  We should be able to get a 
publication date of next Tuesday, and the review period will end on 
September 22.

This will be the time to ensure that each of your AC reps fills out their 
vote on XForms 1.1 advancement to recommendation.  Also, it is the time to 
prepare your testimonial for XForms 1.1 and get it approved by your 
company for inclusion in the release of the Recommendation.

Steven and I were both on the call today, and our work was thoroughly 
scrutinized and fairly considered.  The rigorous work put into preparing 
the materials need for advancement was both necessary and sufficient, and 
congratulations are due to each member of the working group as well as the 
community who helped us to create the fantastic technical product that is 
XForms 1.1.

Steven, I noted that you took the action item to make the publication 
request.  Thank you.  Please do this tomorrow and cc me on the request; 
I'll be out of town next week and would like to see this go out before I 
leave, esp. since the publication date occurs while I am away.  Since you 
are hours ahead of me, we will gain the advantage of timezones if there 
are any issues.

The documents requiring publication are specifically:

http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/specs/XForms1.1/index-all.html  (file)
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/specs/XForms1.1/index-diff.html (file)
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/specs/XForms1.1/examples (full directory)
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/specs/XForms1.1/images (full directory)

The pubrules check is all good, except it complains about three URLs.  One 
is the URL to the very document, which will start working correctly when 
it is published.  The other two are example URLs related to our "get 
weather" web service in the SOAP submission section.  The pubrules checker 
is incorrectly identifying these as links and getting a 404.  However, 
they do not appear as links in the document, so the pub request should 
indicate that these 404s should be ignored.

Thank you,
