I was just reading the minutes. Overall they're very helpful and well done 
IMO and seem to capture the discussion sufficiently for non-attendees to 
follow. However, when there is discussion of things like a draft "mailing 
list code of conduct" document, it would be very helpful to have a link to 
the draft being discussed.

<former chair hat on>
Regarding obligation of TAG members to respond to all discussion on the 
mailing lists: I don't think it's practical to impose such an obligation on 
a group like the TAG. The TAG is 9 people, and the potential traffic on the 
mailing list is effectively unbounded. Responding to all emails, even from 
very concerned correspondents, is only sometimes (though often) the best 
use of time IMO.

TAG members are chosen (should be chosen) by the community primarily 
because their judgements' are respected. Trusting TAG members to make 
reasonable decisions on when to respond explicitly and when not seems to be 
sensible. We trust them with many more difficult matters.

I do think it's reasonable to expect that at every posting to www-tag will 
be read or at least skimmed by at least one TAG member. I would expect that 
to happen naturally in most cases, but for a long and difficult discussion 
the chair(s) might assign a few people to relieve other TAG members of the 
need to read everything.

Thank you!
