Hi, Folks-

Matt Womer and I have started a new email list for discussing geolocation. The new list, public-geolocation [1], will be archived, and the intent is for it to be the public list for the planned Geolocation WG:


I want to encourage folks not to put off technical discussion on the matter, or wait for the Geolocation WG to form; you can join the email list today, and start your engines. Of particular interest will be initial discussions of what the scope of the deliverables should be, and that will affect the charter.

In parallel, we will be working on the charter in public, and will present it to W3M and submit it for AC Review. We already know that there is considerable Member interest in this activity, so we anticipate a smooth review period, and will announce the new WG as soon as possible. We will keep the public-geolocation list informed every step of the way.

We've also started a new W3C IRC channel, #geolocation. Please feel free to have discussions there, as well. We are interested in keeping logs of the chat there on the W3C servers, so chime in if you think that's a good or bad idea.
