RE: Seeking earlier feedback from MS [Was: IE Team's Proposal for Cross Site Requests]

I want to be clear here. I can see how my email can be misunderstood but I think the point I've been trying to make is that email discussions are not substitute for the F2F. In the next 2 weeks I'll certainly attempt to answer questions and comments when I can.

Ian, no doubt we are unique in the field of delays on features\projects at the W3C. I'm going to refain from engaging in a personal 'he said she said' two way on email however I will make an exception and take time to clarify (another one of) your combative comments\polemic that is just not constructive and takes away from more useful conversations we've had in the past.

As you yourself have said, minutes for telecons and F2F's are poor. I did not commit to mid to late November. I said in TPAC I wold try to give security feedback  6 weeks to 2 months after the event. In a number of events that followed I had a family emergency and was indisposed for awhile. The point has been made, I'm sorry and would like to bury the hatchet and move on...

I honestly am not sure it's worth Google's time for me to attend this
meeting if it's going to be hijacked to talk about input that everyone
specifically agreed would be discussed in advance of the meeting. We can't
make educated decisions in a face to face meeting if we haven't had the
time to discuss them before hand. This was clearly discussed and
established weeks ago.

For the record, the deadlines Sunava originally agreed to were mid to late
November 2007. That's over six months ago now.
