Yes, we should take into account other relevant work.
The specification(s) we develop will, as a matter of course, cite
other specs that we depend on. So developing a list of
dependencies is part of developing the specification.

So it seems to me that the "spec baseline" agendum is the next
step to take in this direction during a teleconference.

(Meanwhile, I do keep a list of the groups that maintain related
specs at , based
on the list from our charter. )

I expect to make only limited progress on the overall question
of collaboration tools and processes during tomorrow's teleconference.
I expect it will take a group this size some months to get
to a stable rhythm.

Some discussion of blog/wiki usage may come up during the main
agenda, but I prefer to keep it somewhat separate. It's
fine for the orientation
discussion ( ).

Note that the HTML WG is not the only forum W3C hosts
on collaboration, by far...

p.s. I notice you're one of 4 people who indicated, in the
teleconference survey, availability and willingness to help
with the orientation discussion. Do you use IRC regularly?
Or would you like to talk about it by phone?
I'm in the #html-wg channel (on, port 6665 )
just now. I'm somewhat available for a few more hours,
and then I'll be back again in the morning, Chicago time.
