plh: we can't publish from june 7th -> 17th, so we need to get them published or they have to wait

paulc: robin is on point to pubish and I assume he is taking care of the publishing

WG Decision to publish three heartbeat drafts as WDs


WG Decision to publish main element extension specification as WG Note


Items Closing This Week


New Calls this Week

CfC: to publish a revised “HTML5 Image Description Extension” Working Draft closes Tue Jun 4


paulc: I sent this out on the list last weekend a closes next tuesday midnight boston time
... If the CFC has agreement in the group then we should try to get this published before the lockdown

plh: It should be possible to publish as long as the CFC has agreement

paulc: That is why I send out the plan to the group so we can proceed

Other Business

paulc: status check on removal of Microdata from 5.0
... no discussion on the list, some whatwg group according to robin
... robin though we should wait a bit

CfC: remove Microdata from HTML 5.0, incorporate Microdata into 5.1, publish Microdata doc as a W3C note


<paulc> Most recent Microdata email on thread: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2013May/0134.html

paulc: we'll look for an update on this topic with a pointer to the discussion in the whatwg

plh: I have an update on the HTML charter
... We proposed a new charter to the AC board and we received several objections
... AC meeting will discuss content protection and document license
... I expect the directors will make a call on the charter the following week after the AC meeting

<paulc> charter: http://www.w3.org/html/wg/charter/2012/

<paulc> WRONG LINK

<plh> charter: http://www.w3.org/html/wg/charter/2013/Overview.html

plh: Note this is the correct link http://www.w3.org/html/wg/charter/2013/Overview.html
... The AC meeting is on June 10th and June 11th, which would mean a call on the charter would occur on the week for June 17th

paulc: Will this be about EME?

plh: It will be about content protection, since we have a formal objection on content protection

<rubys> http://dev.w3.org/html5/status/formal-objection-status.html#EME-1

paulc: The chairs have recorded the formal objections to EME publishing

<paulc> See http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2013May/0138.html

paulc: We are also having access issue by people doing cross list posts and getting denied
... plh other items?

rubys: director was included and we should resolve the first objection before processing this objection

paulc: So then we should expect this to happen after June 17th (second publishing for EME)
... I can chair the meeting next week, sam does this work for you?

krisk: scribe?

I can help since I'll be giving and update for the TTF

paulc: Janina could you comment on Firefox's long desc support?
