Here is a contribution which could be included, summarizing how we have 
been doing telcon minutes:

### start ###
We do "quick minutes" -- plain text in email -- and link into the archive 
from the minutes list on the QA Web site.  This is per the suggestion in 
http://www.w3.org/Guide for "Quick and Dirty Minutes".

1. The scribe should start with telcon-template.txt from ../QA/Group web page;
2.  Scribe calls roll, and transfers names from the template's master 
WG-members list to "Absent" and "Regrets";
3.  After the telcon, scribe lists new action items and responsible person;
4.  Relatively soon after the telcon, scribe circulates clearly marked 
"Draft Minutes" to the WG mailing list, www-qa-wg@w3.org.
5.  Allow about a week for comments/corrections.
6.  Scribe circulates "Final Minutes" to the WG mailing list, www-qa-wg@w3.org.
7.  QA Web site team enters link from ../QA/WG to the minutes message in 
www-qa-wg email archive.
8.  QA co-chair (any one) sends simple email announcement to IG 
(www-qa@w3.org), saying that minutes are available on the Web page ../QA/WG.

The job of scribe rotates through the WG membership.

Okay.  Would it also be useful to put "Telcon Template" -- the .txt file 
mentioned above -- there on that page, prominently linked?  See for example
