RE: EOWG: Reading and Agenda for 18 August 2006 Teleconference

Below are my comments re Rough Draft:

Suggest to introduce "technical report"  term at the beginning of the
document avoid later confusion.  I think that we can introduce one
diagram with all five stages vs three presented in the draft.

Suggest to have consistency in describing each phase: e.g. what
(definition and objective), review process (public comments, reiterative
process), publishing status (where, when, how many revisions), public
announcements (when, where)

Subject: EOWG: Reading and Agenda for 18 August 2006 Teleconference

Dear EOWG Participants:

An agenda and calling logistics for our 18 August 2006 teleconference

Time:    8:30am - 10:30am U.S. Eastern Time. For other time zones see:

Bridge:  +1.617.761.6200, code: EOWG# (3694#)
IRC:     Channel: #eo, server:, port: 6665
Scribe:  See

READING: Before the meeting please read the latest draft of the Process
Intro ("101") doc, think about the questions listed, and be prepared to
discuss them at the teleconference. It is also very helpful to send
comments to the list before the meeting.


1. Potential face-to-face meetings
* Brief check in on travel availability

2. W3C Process Intro ("101")
* Discuss revised Rough Draft:

Note Status and Review Level: Complete Rough Draft. Feel free to comment
on tone and writing approach. However, it's still rough, so I'd prefer
if you not pick too much on the wordsmithing, copyediting level (e.g.,
grammar, sentence length, awkward wording).

2.a. Overall how does the structure and organization work? How does this
draft meet the requirements? Note that there are very different needs
from different personas and we're not trying to address all of them in
this document. Is this the right balance?

2.b. Ideas for title? Sub-headings? See:

2.c. What do you think of the proposed image(s)?

2.d. Some little things:
2.d.i. Any strong reactions on use of "public" and "community"
throughout the document?
2.d.ii. Do we need any text for "5. W3C Recommendation (Web Standard)"?
(There is none in this draft) Possibilities include:
- What's in the Process Doc: "A W3C Recommendation is a specification or
set of guidelines that, after extensive consensus-building, has received
the endorsement of W3C Members and the Director. W3C recommends the wide
deployment of its Recommendations. Note: W3C Recommendations are similar
to the standards published by other organizations." <>
- Something like in a previous version of this doc: "Recommendations
have received significant support from the public, and endorsement by
W3C Members and the W3C Director. W3C Recommendations are similar to the
standards published by other organizations."

* Note updated requirements analysis:
And recent edits listed at:

3. Trends and Issues

4. Schedule for remaining August and September teleconferences
* List availability and regrets for next few weeks

IRC reminders and tips:
- IRC is supplemental to the call. Some participants do not have IRC.
All substantive comments should be said verbally in the call (not just
in IRC).
- to type a side comment that will _not_ get recorded in the minutes,
type /me comment - e.g.:
/me hopes everyone had pleasant holidays will come out:
*shawn hopes everyone had pleasant holidays
