Hi again,

as you know, we have not had regular phone meetings in the past few 
months. Instead, we discussed quite a lot by email and finalised, in 
particular, the Requirements with Priorities document [1].

Actually, the group seems to be at a turning point now: we know what to 
specify, now we need to actually do it!

So I would like to suggest changing the pace of the work a little bit, 
by planning ahead a sequence of phone conferences every 2-4 weeks.

As a regular meeting slot, is Thursdays 14:00 UTC OK with everyone? (It 
corresponds roughly to the time slot we had before, but takes into 
account daylight saving time in the US and in Europe.) That is 16:00 in 
Berlin, 15:00 in London, 07:00 in California, and 22:00 in Beijing. The 
meetings should not last longer than one hour.

How about meeting on the following dates:

* 19 June
*  3 July
* 31 July
* 21 August

The points to discuss at the first of these dates include at least the 
* Can we agree on writing a draft spec in XML? If so,
   - would EARL [2] be a suitable starting point?
   - are there other suggestions for starting points?
* Can we agree on principles that should guide the spec writing? Things 
like, "simple cases should look simple" or "structure should be explicit 
enough to avoid confusion" etc.? Any suggestions?
* Can we identify a small group of very active people who are willing to 
push forward with a very first informal version of the spec?
* What is a reasonable time plan?

* (any other urgent topics)?

It time permits, we could also start discussing:
* Do we want this endeavour to continue, possibly towards a formal W3C 
* What are the pro's and con's of aiming for a new working group (WG) 
vs. becoming one of the topics discussed in an existing WG such as MMI?

If you cannot participate in the first of these meetings but want to 
make sure your voice is heard, please send your thoughts in an email to 
this list.
