Re: Comment on "Call for Review: Publishing Working Group Charter"

I would propose three things.

- The IG is winding down anyway, and I do not think it would work on its document in the upcoming time. I would propose that IG publish these documents as IG Notes as soon as possible (which will mean after the AC meeting when the publishing moratorium is over).
- To avoid any further misunderstandings I would prefer the IG change/modify the title of the documents rather than change the charter. "Ruminations on Web Publications" sounds sexy, but I am not sure it is appropriate for a W3C /TR document.
- Add some texts on the fact that the WG has the possibility to change the names if it wishes to do so.

As for 'ruminations'…

- "Technical reflections on Web Publications"
- "Contemplating Web Publications"
- "Deliberations on Web Publications"

The input of a native Anglo-Saxon may be helpful here…
