Actually, the dates have been changed to November 11-15. The TPAC home 
page is <http://www.w3.org/2013/11/TPAC/>

Please reply by May 6 at the latest.

My _personal_ view is that given the good progress we have made without 
f2f meetings, and assuming we can continue that progress going forward, 
I don't see a compelling need for this group to meet f2f at TPAC (or 
anywhere else).

OTOH, I don't object to us meeting at TPAC, provided: there is a clear 
reason to meet; the meeting is relatively short (say 1/2 day maximum); 
and we can provide teleconf support for remote attendees. Another option 
(or perhaps in addition to meeting f2f) is to propose an informational 
slot about Pointer Events during the Technical Plenary (TP) meeting 
(Wednesday Nov 13) where we can provide, for example, an overview of the 
technology, demos, Q&A, etc.

Regardless of whether or not this group meets at TPAC, that week 
provides a great opportunity to attend (as an Observer) other Working 
Group meetings, meet other W3C participants and to participate in 
broad(er/ish) Web topics during the TP meeting.

(In the interest of a full disclosure, since the WebApps WG is meeting 
on Monday and Tuesday of that week as well as the W3C Advisory 
Committee, I intend to go to TPAC.)

-Thanks, AB
