Mikhail, John, all,

I agree that having a schedule for this activity in place and the buy-in
from all interested parties involved would help to move this along. 
Since we have less than two weeks left before the next WG11 meeting
(April 19-24) I suggest the following course of actions:
- I will ask WG11 to extend the current AHG mandate until the next WG11
meeting in June 28 - July 03;
- We will have AHG conference call to discuss the remaining open issues,
agree on a schedule, and develop a plan for the working draft of the
Composite Fonts specification.

I suggest that we should have the conference call on the week
immediately after the MPEG meeting. Would Wednesday, April 29th work for
everyone involved? If yes, please let me know what time would be
convenient for all participants and I will arrange the call.

Best regards,
