Having been out of the office for 12 days, there's a fair amount that I 
need to go through when I get back next week.  That said:  nothing 
specific comes to mind, but I do have some higher level goals for the F2F 
that I hope you'll at least consider.  Basically:

* Goal:  Figure out the success critera for our work on Web Application 
Architecture, and whether our results on that should be more than the sum 
of the parts.  It would be good if we started to have some thoughts about 
the form of our results, even if the answer is just to do scattered emails 
and findings;  I still think there is a chance that an AWWW Vol 2 and/or 
updates to Vol 1, might be a good way to go for Web Apps.  I am not 
necessarily pushing for lots of meta-discussion about such things.  I 
would like to see the vast majority or even all of of our time on Web apps 
devoted to technical discussion.  With luck, some insights about the whole 
will emerge from that.  Nonetheless, this is probably my top priority "as 
chair".  Also, I wonder whether we should also do some looking at that 
Table of Contents from June to see whether it inspires anyone to dive into 
new topics, and thus to accept some new actions (before or during the 

* Goal: clarify our interest is in metdata, and make sure our actions are 
well aligned with those goals.  I think we are doing some good stuff in 
this space, and all of it may be well covered by existing actions and 
ISSUE-62 and ISSUE-63.  Nonetheless, I tend to get some odd vibes from the 
group when metadata comes up.  Some people say: "beware, that's all of 
computer science".  Some seem interested specifically in one of the two 
issues but don't want the TAG spending time on the other.  So, I hope we 
can come out with some TAG consensus on what our priorities are.

In both cases, it would be nice to have a general sense of what success 
criteria are for, say, the next 3-6 months.  Again, if we can get there by 
mostly following tracker and assigning/discussing the appropriate actions, 
that's just fine with me.

Today is T-2 weeks, so our agenda is due.

If you know more than what tracker knows, let me know right away.

That page knows everything I know except for a
few thoughts from recent phone calls.

I'll be organizing it into an agenda page today.
