The TAG is a special working group within the W3C, chartered (under the W3C Process Document) with stewardship of the Web architecture.
As outlined in our charter, there are three aspects to this mission:
- to document and build consensus around principles of Web architecture and to interpret and clarify these principles when necessary;
- to resolve issues involving general Web architecture brought to the TAG;
- to help coordinate cross-technology architecture developments inside and outside W3C.
