Agenda for 21 May 2009 TAG Teleconference and Start of F2F Agenda Planning

The agenda for the TAG teleconference of 21 May 2009 is now available at 
[1,2], and a text-only copy is included at the end of this message.

I would like to call attention to the inclusion in this agenda of a list 
[3] I've assembled of every topic I could find that we have discussed or 
considered discussing since the previous F2F, as well as a list of open 
actions extracted from tracker and grouped by owner [4].  These are 
included under the agenda item "F2F Agenda Planning" [5], in the hope that 
they will be useful in considering priorities for the upcoming F2F.

  >>I would be very grateful if TAG members would look over these lists 
during the next few days, and be prepared to discuss which of these 
suggest significant focus items for the F2F and for our work in coming 
months.<<   Feel free also to point out omissions from the list at [3], 
which was assembled manually and likely has some errors.

Raman has already strongly urged us to focus on ISSUE-60 
(WebApplicationState).  We have agreed to do so, but we have seemingly 
been remiss in not yet discussing in email this week specific ideas for 
next steps (I have some, but have yet to set them down in email.)  So, 
discussion of that during the next two days would also be very helpful.

So, we will ahve some preliminary discussion on Thursday of what our F2F 
and future priorities should be, and we will pick that up again next week 
when Henry and Tim are back with us.

Thank you.

          + Background:
               o [51]Rick Jelliffe email requesting TAG consideration
                 of concerns with XML Schema 1.1
               o [52]Response from TAG chair (Noah) indicating that,
                 consistent with [53]pertinent provisions of the TAG
                 Charter, TAG members will be given the opportunity to
                 vote on whether to accept this issue, and if so, with

                 Content-type "sniffing" in browsers. Note that the

                 revisit progress in IETF/HTML liaison on content
                 sniffing (invite Mark Not or Lisa D?) - due 2009-05-15
