Rechartering

The WebApps WG began its third charter review period on 16 March 2010.

The new proposed charter identified five specifications as new work items for the group:

In addition, there are several other specifications which were either renamed or reorganized, with some being split off as separate specifications from existing specifications; in addition, some specifications were subject to proposals for alternative approaches, which were published as competing specifications with the same scope as the originals.
