| As I noted probably more than a month ago in private correspondence I 
| will be in Rome at a Bible translation conference and related meetings 
| during the week of April 12th - 16th and actually have a presentation on 
| the 16th.
| Therefore, I will not be able to attend WG3 meetings from the 13th - 
| 16th of April, 2004.
| ...
| Realizing that we do have an opportunity to push ahead with topic maps 
| and that we should devote the time necessary to move forward, I would 
| like to float a alternative.
I am personally willing to consider meeting after XML
Europe, but I fear it may be too late for some others,
since most people will have assumed we would be meeting
before the conference.

| In the press of other things my conflict with these meeting dates just 
| slipped your mind.

I had not forgotten your appointment in Rome, but as I
said when you informed me about it, Friday 16th was the
very latest I could envision us starting the meeting,
and I warned that it could be even earlier.

I did say that I would do what I could in terms of the
agenda to minimize the impact of you having to be in
Rome on the 16th and I stand by that. I guess that means
scheduling the RM discussion for the Saturday afternoon
if you can't be in Amsterdam on the days prior to your
presentation (which is what I was anticipating).

So perhaps we are talking about Tuesday to Saturday,
inclusive of the SC34 plenary.
