[Apologies if you get duplicates of this message.]

The Scheme Language Steering Committee is pleased to announce that  
Arthur Gleckler and John Cowan have agreed to chair working groups 1  
and 2, respectively, pending acceptance of the charters for those  
working groups.

The Steering Committee will select the members of those working groups  
following a call for volunteers.  Those who volunteer to serve on a  
working group should:

  * be prepared to serve for the duration named in the group's charter
  * believe in the value of standardization
  * accept the goals and limitations of the working group's charter
  * support the goal of sharing Scheme code effectively
  * be able to work constructively toward compromise

Details of the volunteering process will be provided later.

New drafts of the charters proposed for working groups 1 and 2 are now  
online at http://www.scheme-reports.org/ .

Comments on these two draft charters are solicited.  If you want your  
comments to be seen only by the Scheme Language Steering Committee,  
send them to

     steering-committee-feedback at scheme-reports.org

If you want your comments to be viewable by everyone, send them to
