Definition[edit]

From http://www.thefreedictionary.com/working+group, a working group is "a group of people working together temporarily until some goal is achieved". This is a broader and more accurate definition of the term. I suggest the article start with this definition, then add the content of the current first sentence, plus other definitions. Be sure also to include references. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Takeitupalevel (talkcontribs) 12:47, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Excellent point. Edited accordingly. Mark D Worthen PsyD 19:00, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Irrelevant Click Through[edit]

I have been sent here from a discussion of html, and foolishly expected to be told what the "html working group" is.

My bad: I should have noticed that just "working group" was the item underlined.

Can I be excused on the grounds that a reasonable person would think this a quite inane item to selected as an html anchor, while any editor with even a scintilla of mother wit might have seen the notion that there is such a thing as an html working group, or more likely The HTML Working Group, as worthy of a click-through footnote?
