The common understanding for the group's Widget specs, some of which was captured during the TPAC f2f meeting, is:

  • The WG will NOT start any new widget specs
  • The WG will NOT start any new work on the specs that are considered finished, namely, those in PR or REC (or soon to be PR/REC): 1) Widget Packaging and XML Configuration, 2) XML Digital Signatures for Widgets, 3) view-mode Media Features, 4) WARP and 5) Widget Interface
  • The Native Web Application CG is the venue to discuss the WG's two unfinished widget specs and to move them toward REC: 1) Widget Updates, 2) widget URI scheme. These specs will be published by WebApps.
