Yes. The metadata project is still considered a work item of the TC. What we 
have a agreed yesterday was that we put the current meta data proposal on our 
TC's web site and ask for feedback until December, the 19th. We further 
agreed to discuss the feedback we receive in the conference call of December, 
the 19th. There was no decission to continue the meta data work item 
somewhere outside the OpenDocument TC.

The TC's decission was to postpone the meta data discussion until we have 
restructured the TC in a way that allows us to discuss the additional topics, 
that have a higher priority for the moment, and to use the time to get 
feedback for the proposal. There was no decission to cancel the the meta data 
work item.

I therefore think that the TC is in agreement that the meta data work item 
will be continued within the TC. Feedback to the TC's work is, as always, 

Best regards
