I was wondering whether you might give me an update on the status of this? 
I followed some of the links from your ACTION-190 [1]; as best I can tell 
it was put off for a week on 6 January 2011 [2], and then I lose the trail. 
This is about getting the author-only view back into the HTML5 Rec-track 
publication packages.

I have TAG ACTION 379, which is basically to make sure this happens 
eventually, so it would be helpful to know where this stands. Thank you 
very much.
