5. Release schedule

   Do we need a schedule for point releases? How often should we do them?

6. XML Character Entity distribution

   Private conversation with ISO representatives confirms that ISO has
   no plans to issue normative 8879 XML entity sets. (In fact, the
   8879 entities are not normative.) Private conversation with Karl
   Best suggests that forming a TC to publish the XML entity sets is
   probably overkill. We can probably do it as a TC work product.

7. Charter update

   The purpose of this committee is to develop and maintain the DocBook
   family of specifications. In particular, this TC maintains the XML
   and SGML DocBook DTDs, a suite of extension modules, and a simplified
   authoring subset of DocBook. The TC may also support other schema
   languages in the future and may develop additional modules and
   derived document types.

   The DocBook TC will also develop specifications based on previously
   published standards for use in the XML version of DocBook and other
   related XML specifications; the first such specification will be based
   on previously published ISO 9573 entity sets (themselves an extension
   of the ISO 8879 entity sets).
