I'm not interested in joining a working group, but I would like to follow
the design discussions of the working groups.  For example Netscape is doing
this via their public newsgroups.

Right now I am working on an XML based query language. I'm doing this work
in the dark because the last feedback out of the W3C was this page from Nov
15. http://www.w3.org/TandS/QL/QL98/

Why can't we have read-only access to the discussion group archive at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-ql/? This would allow me to keep my
code somewhat in alignment with the thoughts of the W3C.

Without this access my code is likely to be completely different that the
first W3C draft. And when the draft arrives I may choose to ignore it
because it will be too much work to bring my code into alignment. Is this
really what the W3C is trying to achieve?
