Hello Chairs, and the chairs of MWIBP, RIF, WAI, SWDWG, UWA, and XML 
Activity, as well as the TAG and PICS IG,

On 17 November 2008, the POWDER WG announced a second Last Call on its 
suite of documents [1]. Comments were duly received and have been 
answered, however, we failed to send a formal notice to the recipients 
of this reminder.

Therefore, I must ask whether any WG would some time to carry out a 
review of our work. If so, please let me or Matt Womer know. If not, we 
will continue our preparations for a transition request to Proposed 
Recommendation (in the absence of any further comment, this is expected 
within the next 2 weeks or so).

The POWDER Working Group has been developing a suite of documents that 
specify a protocol for publishing descriptions of Web resources.  The 
POWDER Working Group agreed [2] to publish the three Recommendation 
track documents in this suite as Second Last Call Working Drafts. Since 
that time, updated versions have been created that are not formally 
published but that do reflect the comments already received.

* POWDER: Formal Semantics
* POWDER: Description Resources
* POWDER: Grouping of Resources

The Working Group has also published two Working Drafts that are 
expected to become Working Group Notes:

* POWDER: Primer

* POWDER: Test Suite

We welcome feedback on these important publications as well.

A recent blog post gives an overview of the current state of the POWDER 
WG including links to various pieces of running code [3].
