I asked if we could have an extension as an XG, but I think the answer was that we would be switched to a community group, which apparently is easy to do. But to tell the truth I did not find the answer I received very clear.

I think there is still some work to be done on the spec. It clearly won't be quite finished in a couple of weeks. But it is a big improvement over what we had. In any case I think a WebID community group is something that will have a very valuable role, helping new people on board and even exploring other aspects of WebID. 

I think what needs to be done is:
  - good test service
  - spec improvements
  - automatic reports for libraries that work

But I am not sure how best this should be done in W3C. If we were to get an extension I think a 6 month extension would not be bad. That allows us to progress at a good pace, without it being overwhelming amount of work or stress. What we are finding recently is a lot of new people joining, which is great. 

 Still it would be good to have a final v1 spec soon, so we can move on to read-write-web stuff.
