Hi Gregory,

If you recall I had an action item to set this up - see the last 2 aria
subteam meeting minutes/agendas.

If it were publicly available (HTML, XHTML, SVG) we could potentially have
a 100 people on the call. As it was it was a challenge to minute this. I do
not want to manage a call of that size and we need to get things moving
forward. The people involved were leaders trying to adopt aria in html,
svg, and xhtml.

I felt it would be more productive to get the leaders to agree on some
proposals and then take them back to their respective groups for
discussion. I have posted the minutes on the xhtml 2, html, and pf lists.

aloha! one question: why wasn't the joint meeting more broadly/openly
announced? there was no one in the XHTML2 WG that had been informed (save,
apparently, for StevenP, but he's unavailable for meetings this week) there
was also a list of participants from PF, logged in the minutes archived at:
http://www.w3.org/2007/10/10-pf-minutes.html who were supposed to be part
of the call, but no one on the list seems to have been informed of the call
-- and no one other than SteveP or RichS working within the XHTML2 WG was
even aware that there was a call, so the posting of the minutes took those
of us in the #xhtml channel quite by surprise Al asked Rich, quote Who is
going to tell XHTML2 WG? unquote many in the XHTML2 WG are wondering why
they were not told before-hand -- SteveP was not available to chair the
XHTML2 WG meeting today, so there was time for WG participants to
communicate via IRC, and the announcement of a meeting and a proposed
solution took everyone by surprise... it is important that we keep the
lines of communication to all stake-holders as open as possible -- was this
a breakdown or an executive decision? gregory.
