For discussion of matters related to DOM3 Events, the WebApps WG uses the mailing list (archive).


The goal of the DOM3 Events sub-group, part of the Web Applications Working Group, is to complete the DOM3 Events specification according to market needs, to drive its adoption and implementation, to provide a comprehensive test suite (for implementability at least, and hopefully for interoperability, too), and to move it along the Recommendation Track to W3C Recommendation status.


The current editors of the DOM3 Events specification are Microsoft's Travis Leithead and Jacob Rossi.
