   d. Norm to raise RFE 1194196 on the docbook mailing list
      and ask the proposer to participate.

6.  Update on new OASIS attendance rules.

Still under discussion at OASIS, but no new rules have been
proposed yet.  Continue this item.

7.  DTD 4.5 status.

Norm announced the availability of beta version 4.5b1 
on 5 May.  Not much feedback from the mailing list yet.

Responding to a request, Norm will add a comment to each element
declaration in the DTD to indicate the element's purpose.

The Committee adopted a resolution to publish Candidate Release 1
of DTD version 4.5. The Committee intends to adopt the CR
as a Committee Specification at the July meeting, and then
start the process of making it a full OASIS specification.

ACTION: Norm to publish 4.5 CR1.

8.  Schema V5 development status.

The development version is stable for now.  Norm is close
to completing a specification. When the spec is available
the Committee will formally begin discussing version 5,
using the development version as a test bed.

9. Review of Requests for Enhancement
