Subject: Redistribution of HTML 2.0 Comments
X-Listprocessor-Version: 6.0c -- ListProcessor by Anastasios Kotsikonas

This is becoming quite a headache... I have attempted to distinguish
between comments sent personally to me, and comments sent to www-talk
etc. which can be redistributed.

The result is, for example,
	Joe submits comments X, Y, and Z

	I respond to joe's message, and file it under "comments
		to fold in"

	Fred notices some of the same things joe noticed, but
	because Joe only sent his comments to me, I couldn't
	make them publicly available, so Fred didn't see them.
	He comments on X, Z, and T.

So I have added the following notice to

Review and Publication Process

The WWW technology will probably be moderated by an international
consortium in the future, but since the need for this document is
immediate, it will be published as an SGML Open Technical Report. An
SGML Open technical committee is forming. Contact Dan Connolly
<>, or Yuri Rubinsky, <> for details.

The document will be publicly available throughout the review process. 

We are trying to set up a publicly available archive of the review
comments. Currently, a WIT discussion area and a hypermail archive of
www-html are candidates.

When the public archive mechanism becomes stable, I intend to upload
my collection of comments on the HTML spec to that archive. And in
general, to prevent duplicate comments on similar issues, I reserve
the right to publicly redistribute all comments sent to me regarding
the HTML 2.0 spec. I will use discretion in making old messages
available without the expressed consent of the author, but in the
future, consent will be implictly given just by commenting on the HTML
2.0 document. If you have sent me comments on the HTML 2.0 document
that you don't want made public, please let me know.
