Hi Katie and all,

Katie said:

Of course there is. All of this work is about the line between our end 
users requirements and the needs and wants of the group members etc. So 
we are working towards a compromise/workable solution. I urge everyone 
to take a breath. There is a new draft that the group will get a chance 
to give two or three cents on but we have been listening, and take very 
seriously yours (and others) ardent concerns. [1]

Notice that details of timeframe etc are being moved out of the charter 
to a seperate 'AG WG Project Management Plan' doc that is being worked 
on.

More details to follow.

I appreciated e'ones input on this but think it is time to find some zen 
space to let this evolve in a sensible way.

Thanks

Josh
