Re: MINUTES: W3C User Agent Teleconference 29 November 2001


For the record, I'd like to include the usual metadata I
put in minutes:

Agenda announcement:
Participants: Jon Gunderson (Chair), Tim Lacy, Jim Allan, Harvey
Bingham. Ian was on IRC only.

Absent: Gregory Rosmaita, Rich Schwerdtfeger, Eric Hansen
Mickey Quenzer, Denis Anson, David Poehlman

Previous meeting: 15 November 2001

Next meeting: 13 December (no 6 December meeting)

Reference document 12 September Candidate Recommendation:

I would like to note that thanks to IRC, I was able to 
participate (just a little). I look forward to the WG
continuing to use IRC as a means of participation that
supplements, but does not replace, the telephone.
