Re: Update on Status of XKMS Activity Proposal

The attached Activity and Charter were proposed to the Advisory Committee 
(AC) yesterday. AC votes are due in 4 weeks, the Directors' decision in 
another two.

This means the official beginning of the proposed Activity would be 
announced no later than December 7th. However, the proposed Chairs (Stephen 
Farrell, Baltimore; Shivaram Mysore, Sun) would like to schedule the first 
meeting to coincide with the IETF meeting (Dec 9-14). So that's a tight fit.

But, as before, there's nothing on *this* list (the Workshop list) that 
precludes technical nor organizational discussion in anticipation of 
approval of the Activity Proposal. So, while one shouldn't expect the W3C 
to provide resources (such as teleconference bridge) before we have  
official approval (not politic), folks should give some thought to that 
first meeting.


* I will be in France from 3-9 November for the W3C AC Meeting.
