Hi folks,

this is your self-appoointed chair, with what I hope will be very  
occasional notes for a group that is doing so much productive work so well  
that nobody ever needs to chase loose ends. But until then, a couple of  

== Introductions

If you haven't been here since the beginning, yu will have missed many  
people introducing themselves. And you probably haven't introduced  
yourself either.

To fix the first problem, you can look through the archives of this group.  
Forever. They are at lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-htmail/ and most  
people have helpfully used a subject like "Introduction".

To fix the second if it applies to you, please send a mail to this mailing  
list, with a helpful subject like "Introduction". Note that it will then  
be archived forever, so think before you hit send...

== Github account.

I set one up at https://github.com/W3CGHtmail as a place for people who  
prefer git to editing a wiki. That includes me, since I find it far easier  
to edit HTML than learn 5 different flavours of something that turns into  

== Compatibility tables

I took the CampaignMonitor compatibility tables (the HTML version) and  
with the help of AlexK added some information about mail.yandex.com and  
published them on the above-mentioned github account. You can see what's  
there at https://github.com/W3CGHtmail/compat-tables

There is one for HTML and one for CSS. (OK, to be honest there are stubs  
with a bit of scattered data beyond what CmapaingMonitor already has).

I know there are people who would like others - and I know there are  
people who know more about compatibility with e.g. SVG, or more details  
about HTML than me. And of course *most* email systems are missing still.

So your Pull Requests to improve the content are very welcome - indeed,  
eagerly anticipated.

== Wiki pages

We have 'em. They use the same login as you used to join the group, and  
are available at http://www.w3.org/community/htmail/wiki/ Feel free to  
edit first, and if needed apologise later...

In particular, feel free to do some work and put it on the wiki - or into  
the github repository. Producing content is the most useful thing this  
group can do, but it doesn't happen by itself. And if I do all of it, you  
probably won't like most of it…

And that, for now, should be something for everyone. Enjoy your week,  
please find a moment to move this project forward a little.
