    Hi folks,

    FYI - both the minutes and concensus files from this workshop on
    rechartering the W3C Internationalization Activity are good reading.

    Cheers,

    Subject: Rechartering the W3C I18N Activity

    Dear Internationalization Experts,

    W3C organized a workshop co-located with the 20th
    Unicode Conference last month in Washington DC,
    to discuss the future of the W3C Internationalization
    Activity.

    The minutes and results of the workshop are now published at
    http://www.w3.org/2002/02/01-i18n-workshop
    http://www.w3.org/2002/02/01-i18n-workshop/minutes
    http://www.w3.org/2002/02/01-i18n-workshop/consensus

    The plan now is to use the month of March for a concentrated effort
    to collect additional material. At the end of March, we will
    prepare the new charter(s) for the W3C Internationalization Activity
    based on the input we receive.

    The workshop identified five work streams of potential
    future work:

    - Guidelines, best practices
    - Distributed services (e.g. exchanging locale/collation info)
    - Education & Outreach
    - Localizability
    - Existing work (reviews, character model, liaisons)

    We would like to invite you to participate and contribute
    in helping shape the future of the W3C Internationalization
    Activity. For this, please join the www-i18n-workshop@w3.org
    mailing list, archived at
    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-i18n-workshop/.

    To subscribe, send a mail with subject 'subscribe' to
    www-i18n-workshop-request@w3.org.
    (clicking the following link should do the job:
    mailto:www-i18n-workshop-request@w3.org?Subject=subscribe).

    The workshop was a very good start for planning the new activities,
    but more is needed. In particular, for each work stream,
    we need to get:

    - A more detailed list of work items (including priorities,
       effort needed)

    - Information on business cases, use cases,... to justify
       why W3C should do this work (e.g. how would this improve the Web?)

    - A list of experts and key players

    Please don't hesitate to send your ideas to www-i18n-workshop@w3.org.
    Please use prefixes (e.g. Guidelines, Distributed, Education,
    Localizability, Existing) in mail subjects.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Martin.
