XML-WG and XML-SIG deliberations
Two postings on XML-DEV have explicitly or implicitly referred to the discussion of XML-SIG and XML-WG. The formal position is that the discussions of XML-WG (the current W3C-appointed decision-making body) and XML-SIG (a group of experts who offer advice to XML-WG) are confidential to W3C member organisations (and the invited experts). This confidentiality is important as it represents part of the value of being a member of W3C. There is potential confusion about the archives, since the XML discussion group was originally called the 'WG' and its archives were (and are) public. They ended about June 1997 (any precise dates and current URLs for these?) They are of historical interest and there *might* be some useful discussion there but there is a huge amount to read through. Maybe some of the whitespace discussion is in the public archives, though I wouldn't rush. The archives of XML-WG since June 1997 (?) are not publicly available. Nor are those of XML-SIG. However the discussion on this list, and the publicly reported developments contributed by posters/readers of this list are valued by the XML-groups. For example the recent WG posting emphasised the value of APIs and their possible co-publication with XML specs. The proposal for XSL (XML-STYLE) *is* publicly visible and URLs have been posted on this list. Unfortunately for XML-DEVers, any XML-SIG and XML-WG discussion on this is confidential. I leave it to any XML-WG readers of this list to keep XML-DEV aware of what is happening. Perhaps it could be useful to remind us of the proposed milestones/timescales for the various XML components to be published/accepted.
