Re: [editing] Using public-webapps for editing discussion

We're commenting on Aryeh's spec, he's the author, the copyright holder, 
and our comments to do not entitle us to any form of attribution.


For the sake of Aryeh's copyright on the working document, I'd like to 
remind everyone again, that their "comments" on the document will be 
reviewed by Aryeh, but the document itself is being authored and edited 
solely by Aryeh.

For those responding or contributing to the document, with particular 
spec text, please keep in mind that there is a draft of the document is 
(c) Aryeh Gregor, and that document continues to be released into a 
license that does not require attribution. As with other specs, such as 
DOM4, the editor will maintain a "build" of that document which will be 
labeled under the typical copyright and licenses that the W3C uses.
