I had no intention of doing that. I was just going to create
links from the hypernews structure to the html-wg archive.

As I outlined in my previous message, email isn't working. We do _not_
have a plan that gets the train to the station on time.
For example: can you list the outstanding issues and their status?
Can you give evidence that they will all be resolved before the
December IETF meeting? I can give evidence that they will not.
I'm interested in any solution to this problem except "let's keep
doing what we're doing."
I would expect email to remain one of the principal interfaces to the
system. Messages submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org go into the hypermail
archive and get linked into the HyperNews tree. Perhaps we could build
a reverse gateway if folks are interested.
But I would like to be able to look at some page that gives the status
of all the issues in a nutshell, with links to background and
I think HyperNews is worth a try. I'm willing to hear
alternatives. I'm not willing to sit back and wait. I have
made commitments to many folks that this document will be
done by December.
