As I recall, the macro committee was the subject of some confusion.
The subcommittee was originally formed to investigate issues arising
from Lisp1/Lisp2, and that aspect has been inactive, but I believe
Mark Wegman and Julian Padget did some work over the summer concerning
both the Lisp1/Lisp2 (name capture) issues and expansion environment
issues. Julian reported (briefly) on this at the last X3J13, which
surprised some people who hadn't know of this revival of activity.
