Hello Coralie (et al)!

Appreciate the response!

Two suggestions/requests:

1) Make the entire process (votes, appeals, etc.) 100% transparent.  That'd go a long way towards ensuring public confidence and trust in W3C, the members, and the process itself.

2) Make the votes already taken public.  Let the public know which members/companies supported EME... and which opposed EME.  The only reason (and I mean *only* reason) to keep that information secret is if members (or w3c) feel that the votes cast were done for reasons that would not be supported by the public.  In which case... it should be public knowledge.

Many thanks!
-Bryan Lunduke
