I have contemplated narrowing the range of outstanding issues to get us to a good place ­ a realistic goal at the next face-to-face of having good text on each of the issues.  With the normal clean-up of wording, that puts us in the June/July time frame for Last Call, as contemplated in the new schedule.  The subsequent stages, as I understand it, are standard periods for receiving public comments, etc.

And I thank you very much for that, Peter.

> Mr. Chapell's "request that further TPWG work cease" on all other issues is not the way to proceed.  The W3C will address his point separately.  We have work to do.  Letıs do it on the timetable that we contemplated when I came aboard.

W3C Process allows appeal of a Director's decision by an Advisory
Committee representative.  I have been appointed by the Director to
handle the processing of this appeal.  I have informed the Advisory
Committee that we have received the appeal.  W3C Process requires that
if 5% of the Advisory Committee support the appeal we then conduct a
vote of the Advisory Committee on whether the decision to extend the
charter is approved or rejected.

The Advisory Committee has until 23:59 UTC next Tuesday to provide its
input concerning the appeal.  I have no issue with the Working Group
continuing with its deliberations while this appeal process progresses.

Thank you for all your work on behalf of the Web Community.

Ralph Swick, W3C COO
