ISSUE-19 html5-spec: HTML 5 specification release(s) due Feb 2008

I appreciate that the publication of the HTML 5
specification is taking quite a bit longer than
many working group participants are comfortable with.

Over the last week or two, I consulted with various
parts of W3C management, including Tim Berners-Lee,
and we are agreed on the importance of the heartbeat

.. and its application to the release of the HTML 5 specification.

Working from the date of our previous publication...

... and adding 3 months, we get: 2007-11-26 + 3 months = 2007-02-26
for a deadline for publication for the HTML 5 specification.

The W3C Director, Tim Berners-Lee, sees no reason why this
working group should be excused further from the three-month
heartbeat rule, and further, encourages us to publish sooner
if at all possible.

I suggest this discharges my action...
ACTION-28 on Dan Connolly to Consult with the Hypertext CG and W3C
management about how much time W3C member organizations should be
allowed to study the patent implications of an HTML 5 spec 1st WD

... under the html5-spec issue
