Hi all again,

you can see how the published draft will look like. This is auto-generated
from the wiki via the W3C XSLT servlet and works only if the wiki content
is valid. So if you (editing people) encounter problems, check validation
of the wiki content via

At Dave and all: after your edits on Thursday night, I will go through the
doc again and prepare it finally for publication, with the time schedule
indicated below.

>> All,
>> this is call for consensus for publishing the requirements document
>> http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/wiki/Requirements
>> as a first public working draft. For those of you who are new to the W3C
>> process: we need a decision by the working group to publish the draft under
>> the "TR" directory
>> http://www.w3.org/TR/
>> this evening (European time) I will do the following:
>> - Implement issue-10 in the draft
>> https://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/track/issues/10
>> - generalize all comments like "ARLE: ..." to "working group comment: ..."
>> - add a "status of the document" section at the top of the document
>> - convert the document to HTML and send the so-called "transition
>> request".
>> Please reply to this call for consensus if you have any concerns about
>> the publication. Of course the document still has issues. Note that the
>> publication will be a *first* public working draft, so we will have plenty
>> of opportunities to change things. Note also that publishing asap is
>> helpful for getting wider feedback, e.g. next week at the LREC conference
>> which some of us will attend. So if there are no very severe issues, I
>> encourage you to agree with the publication.
>> Please give any feedback in this thread by tonight 11 p.m. CEST.
>> Thanks,
>> Felix
