xml-dev, still having an impact

I was pleasantly surprised to encounter:

Today, the XML Activity, with several Working Group charters, was approved. This is a major milestone for W3C, not because of the activities of these groups themselves, but for W3C’s process of developing standards.

For the first time, all of W3C’s active Working Groups now operate in public.

...But slowly, with external and internal pressure, including encouragement by some W3C members who put a premium on openness, Working Group charters (renewed every couple of years) more and more commonly designated their group as public. Within a few years, this became the norm, even without pressure. A few Member-only holdouts persisted: the Multimodal Interaction (MMI) WG; the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) WGs; and the XML WGs.


I was even more pleasantly surprised to find conversation on this list - from 2000 - cited in the storytelling.
