"secret" mailing lists, w3c-archive, scope questions, etc.

Maciej on Saturday 06 February 2010 (speaking for the chairs):

(excerpted and emphasis added by me)



Clarification: We think it is fair game for Working Group members to
apply their opinions of what is in scope in deciding whether to
support or advance work. We would rather not see lengthy discussions
about scope on public-html. If anyone is unhappy with a Working Group
decision because he or she feels a work item is outside the scope of
the charter, then that participant may ask the Chairs to consult with
the Team on the proper interpretation of the Charter. If the
participant is unhappy with the result of that consultation, then the
usual avenues for recording disagreement apply, including stating an
ordinary objection for the record, raising a Formal Objection, or if
he or she feels that due process was not given, report concerns to one
of the Team Contacts.

Could the authors of the following two additional messages from
w3c-archive please post them here:





Or at least indicate whether they are still operative?


 From perusing the blogs and the twitters, ..



I am the author of message 108 above, to a small list, including W3C
Team members (but not WG chairs). The first line is "To the W3C Team".
It concerns scope and "Status of This Document", a subject the chairs
would rather not see discussed on public-html.   "w3c-archive" was
also cc'd.
