Subject: my summary of today's meeting

These are not official meeting minutes, but my summary of what I think 
happened in today's TC meeting:

1. There was not quorum present, so no official decisions could be made.

2. Phil has resigned as chair, but offered to stay on as 
secretary/editor, so the first item of business is to select a new 
chair. Bancroft Scott has been nominated, and is considering whether to 
accept the nomination; he will look at the TC Guidelines on the OASIS 
web page to review the responsibilities. If he decides whether to accept 
the nomination I will conduct a ballot using the collaborative tools (Kavi).

3. I note a discrepency on the TC's member roster, in that some people 
are listed as Member but not checked off as a Voting Member; these 
should be synonymous. I will assume for the purposes of the chair 
balloting that only the Voting Members are counted for purpose of quorum.

4. There was considerable doubt as to whether the XCBF specification, 
which was submitted to OASIS for member review/approval as an OASIS 
Standard, was a version that was approved by the TC as its Committee 
Specification. As such, I will put on hold the submission that Phil made 
to me a couple of weeks ago. Some discussion was made regarding some 
points regarding encoding, and the TC members in attendance seemed to 
come to a conclusion that they felt would make everyone happy. John 
Larmouth volunteered to act as ad hoc editor and make a revised version 
of the specification which, once the TC has a new chair, can be balloted 
as a new CS then approved for submission to OASIS.

5. The next TC meeting is May 9.
