News about XForms 1.1 Advancement

Dear Forms WG,

The director's actual decision is in a W3C team only email link, which I 
can't access, but as can be seen in the email from Philippe below, we have 
permission to advance XForms 1.1 to recommendation. 

Philippe asked if the document could be ready for publication next 
Tuesday, so I've prepared and updated the document to reflect Oct. 20 as 
the publication date. The errata document, and the process for generating 
future versions of it, also needed amendment.

While at it, it seemed that the group had considered well enough the two 
small editorial issues regarding the relevant property and the submission 
process, and that it would be inappropriate to use more group time on the 
details due to the seeming obviousness of fixes.  Thus, I made editorial 
amendments to sections 6.1.4 and 11.2, with diff marks to enable 
comparison to the PR.

I've ensured the new document still pass the pubrules, and I prepared all 
information related to the publication request and sent the same.  Then, I 
prepared information related to requesting the transition announcement, 
including collecting together all testimonials, and sent the transition 
announcement request.

Although not yet confirmed, the best information I have at this point is 
that XForms 1.1 will be published as a W3C Recommendation on Oct. 20,
