Subject Re: XML Graphics: draft charter, draft resolution update, items to discuss
Date Mon, 28 Jun 2004 20:37:30 GMT
Thank you, Cliff. This sounds like a very good idea. A lot better than
my current approach. Actually, this has the advantage of speeding things
up a bit and we could start the vote for the resolution almost
immediately. So if nobody objects, I will try to scrape together some
time this week to do this, unless someone beats me to it. :-) After all,
we don't already need the charter right now, but I am thankful that
people take their time to add their comments. I hope you don't mind if I
don't manage to work through all of it this evening.
