Dear EPUB Working Group Members,

As one element of finalizing the planned combination of IDPF with W3C, IDPF anticipates submitting EPUB 3.1 to W3C as a W3C Member Submission (presuming EPUB 3.1 is completed and approved by IDPF Members as a final Recommended Specification).

IDPF and W3C would like all organizations that contributed to the development of EPUB specifications to co-sign IDPF's member submission. This will facilitate the transfer of this important intellectual property and memorialize your organization's contributions to a critical open standard.

A request for co-signers was just published on idpf.org(http://idpf.org/news/request-for-contributors-to-co-sign-idpf-epub-31-submission-to-w3c). This request is of course applicable to all current EPUB Working Group members so we would appreciate your participation, particularly if your organization made material contributions to the development of EPUB.

An authorization, which includes a draft of the cover for the prospective submission, is located at http://idpf.org/sites/default/files/EPUB_3_1_authorization_with_cover.pdf 

This request for co-signers is applicable to all current and former IDPF member organizations that contributed to any version of EPUB (including contributions to extension specifications that were subsequently incorporated into EPUB). Please note that, as provided in the authorization, the prospective submission will take place if and only if the combination of IDPF with W3C is finalized as planned.

If your organization contributed to the development of EPUB specifications, please sign the submission authorization at your earliest convenience (but no later than December 21, 2016), and email a scan of the signed authorization to bmc...@idpf.org (or remit by physical mail to IDPF, 113 Cherry St. Ste 70-719 Seattle, WA 98110 USA).

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

This request is also being sent to IDPF Member Primary Representatives, apologies in advance for any duplication.

Thanks,

--Bill

Do you wish me to do this on behalf of Readium, or do you wish to do it yourself?

Thanks
Ric

This whole move of merging with the W3C is no more then an act of suicide by the IDPF I am so sorry to see this organization that is dear to my heart going to kill itself, therefore I do not intend to faciliate it in any way.
