Dear Laura:

If someone is contacting you about TF business, please refer them to me
or my Co-Facilitator, Mike Smith. There is no need for you, or anyone
else, to attempt to answer questions about TF procedures. In fact, any
answer at this time could only be pure speculation as we have yet to
establish our procedures. I think you'll agree that speculating about
them is unhelpful.

As far as providing information about W3C teleconferences--I frankly am
befuddled by this request. There's nothing different about W3C
teleconferences whatsoever. They operate very much like any other
business teleconference As far as providing information about W3C
teleconferences--I frankly am befuddled by this request. There's nothing
different about W3C teleconferences whatsoever. W3C teleconferences
operate very much like any other business teleconference. Once we know
the what, when and how, of TF teleconferences, that information will be
announced, just as other W3C groups announce that information. Please
recall that the HTML and PF Wgs routinely include this information in
the agendas we post for upcoming teleconferences.

The appropriate action at this time is to respond to the survey Michael
posted. To attempt to say anything else at this time would -- well it
would simply be speculation.
