W3C will be responsible for the CGI spec when they are fully staffed
(June) or if they can find a trusted volunteer to maintain it before then.
By trusted, I mean both the individual and that person's employer
(with the latter preferably being a member of W3C).  If somebody here
wants to do it, send a note to (be sure to include a
descriptive subject).

Nobody, but the changes will be ignored if they are not first agreed
to by the major server authors.  That means Henrik (for W3O), Tony Sanders
(for Plexus, if he still cares), Rob McCool and/or Ari Luotonen (Netsite),
somebody at NCSA (Beth, Carlos, or Brandon?), Chuck Shotton (MacHTTP),
Bob Denny (WinHTTPd), and us.  It is this group of individuals that really
controls the content of CGI.
