The group never agreed on the June Draft - this should be appropriately named the W3C Staff/Swire Draft
16:09:15 [npdoty]
... after these deliberations, propose to stick with the editors' draft/June draft, decision that we sent out, and compiled a document where we tried to detail the argument

Zakim, who is making noise?
16:10:00 [Walter]
sound is not terribly good here either
16:10:03 [Marc]
Was the intended basis for the co-chairs' decision "least strong objection?"
16:10:07 [Zakim]
npdoty, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: schunter (49%)
16:10:10 [Lmastria_DAA]
The deliberations were premised on inaccuracies (at least as it relates to the DAA Program) regardless of the proposals. Therefore the results may be impacted
16:10:17 [jchester2]
who is making the typing noise?
16:10:19 [npdoty]
... email sent out to the group
16:10:22 [npdoty]

16:11:06 [aleecia]
Having a draft replace the consensus draft, however, seems at best irregular.
16:11:08 [npdoty]
... not sure we can allow today's call to go on without a thorough discussion

tlr: happened on one of the calls shortly after that draft was proposed, the editors of the Compliance document agreed to adopt what was proposed as the June draft

I'm confused - I thought I saw an email from Roy about the adoption of the June draft as editor's draft. If Not authorized by Roy, which of the editors turned the June draft into the editors draft?
16:25:54 [npdoty]
WileyS: IRC +1/-1 seemed even, on two alternative options, no call for objection
16:26:05 [johnsimpson]
Would it be appropriate to ask the editors -- Justin and Heather -- why they opted to make the June draft the editors draft?

v. throw away the hard work of the WG over the past 2 years
16:28:49 [fielding]
Thomas, a working group decision by the chairs is supposed to evaluate the objections provided by the working group participants, not invent objections based on external speaking points. Jeff Chester made an objection based on the FTC principles, which is why they were brought in. That does not justify bringing in comments from the FTC and EU commissioners. It doesn't make a difference for me, but we should be clear about what is appropriate to publish in a
16:28:50 [fielding]
clearly predetermined and prewritten opinion of the chairs that is supposed to weigh the opinions of the group.
16:29:02 [npdoty]
... I hear your suggesting doing away with the hard work in writing change proposals, gathering them together, and working through the call for objections, back to square one
16:29:14 [rigo]
aleecia, TLR ack'ed your issue-214, so your 2 years are preserved IMHO
16:29:43 [npdoty]

16:30:42 [npdoty]

16:34:58 [fielding]
Publication of a WD requires agreement of the working group. I know that no such agreement has been made because Aleecia very clearly objected, multiple times, and the chairs said we were not discussing that yet. The issue-215 decision did not mention WD publication and did not request objections on publication of the June draft as a WD.
16:35:01 [npdoty]
aleecia: agree with Shane. in order to replace a working draft or publish a last call working draft, we need to have consensus
16:35:39 [npdoty]
... rather than risk that, it makes more sense to check whether there is a preference for last working draft, go through the formal decision process to see which of these drafts we have a consensus on that
16:35:49 [fielding]
note, we need agreement to publish a WD, not consensus
16:35:50 [npdoty]

Great question - did Staff send this information to the NY Times prior to releasing the decision to the working group???
16:38:12 [Chris_IAB]
was it not a Chair/W3C decision to release to NYTimes-- I think that's the question, right?
16:38:21 [npdoty]
Chapell: peter hasn't been particularly responsive, if that's peter's decision, then I'll delay and ask him
16:38:39 [npdoty]
tlr: the decision went to the mailing list and then was reported by the NYT
16:38:55 [npdoty]
... not published by the NYT
16:38:58 [aleecia]
to augment scribing: my proposal is this, we bring the "june draft" and the consensus draft to a decision. Anything less risks a great undoing later, and is disrespectful to the group members' time, and deeply challenges the very notion of consensus
16:39:08 [WileyS]
HOURS slow???
16:39:16 [jchester2]

16:41:34 [npdoty]
... take a step back, our goal was to fix the editors' draft to a point where we could reach consensus and publish a Last Call by the end of July
16:41:38 [rigo]

16:41:39 [aleecia]
facts were just presented: NYT had the decision before the group. Not sure why we care, but it's pretty clear that was the case.
16:41:41 [npdoty]
... and then relax for a while :)
16:42:06 [npdoty]
... we didn't make that deadline, we have a draft, and a complete list of change proposals as text
16:42:19 [rigo]
aleecia, I do not have evidence here and now and had no reason to go exploring
16:42:21 [aleecia]
so Rigo, if you debate that, sure, do so. No need for email.
16:42:28 [npdoty]
... from my perspective, the path to continue is to take the draft and change proposals and go one-by-one, have an opportunity to be done in a finite time
16:42:41 [johnsimpson]
What is the finite time that it will take to finish?
16:42:43 [jmayer]
My question: The chairs' process, as I understand it, precludes any amendments unless 1) made before the deadline and 2) not related to the major points of the DAA Proposal. For example, going forward, we would not be able to drop the language limiting unique IDs, nor would we be able to consider Yahoo!'s de-identification proposal. Is that understanding correct?
16:42:58 [npdoty]
... since Peter will be absent for some time, could take a short break, two weeks without calls, and then come back and finish these documents
16:42:59 [rvaneijk]
16:43:03 [npdoty]
... would like to gather feedback

Mattias--can you answer Jonathan's question?
16:43:17 [fielding]
16:43:20 [WileyS]
Jonathan, I made the amendment request outside of the industry proposal as well (with Rob) so its still in play there.
16:43:23 [aleecia]
W3C happens in the open, and is transparent. I don't care if the NYT blew an embargo date. I do care when group questions are ignored and pushed to private email.
16:43:26 [npdoty]
... one feedback I've already recorded is that some people would prefer the old draft [April 30th]
16:43:36 [rigo]
q- was only to get NYT offline, this is just a distraction
16:43:45 [rigo]
16:43:58 [dwainberg]
16:43:59 [jchester2]
W3C staff structured the release and framing of the decision.

16:44:31 [rigo]
16:44:33 [Chapell]
Aleecia: I care because it demonstrates that this was a predetermined and prewritten opinion of the chairs rather than an attempt at building consensus
16:44:37 [Chris_IAB]
Mattias, I'd like to enter Roy's email on process into this discussion. I have not seen replies from co-chairs or staff to his email on process.

tlr: if you look at the decision that was reached, and how it was described in call for change proposals, what we have before us is a set of change proposals
16:47:33 [npdoty]
... an interlinked set from NAI and a few others was looked at first
16:47:42 [npdoty]
... that proposal is, as such, off the table
16:47:58 [aleecia]
Alan: at a substantive level, I think there is no actual issue here. The idea that a decision was in place but text to the group was still being word smithed, particularly with time zone issues, seems entirely plausible and reasonable.
16:48:00 [npdoty]
... Process is to go through the issues, some we have one or more texts,
16:48:25 [npdoty]
... ask for counter-proposals and wordsmithing
16:48:36 [npdoty]
... up to the discretion of the chairs on whether to re-open issues
16:48:41 [npdoty]
... some judgment required
16:48:44 [WileyS]
"With additional counter proposals"
16:49:03 [npdoty]
... maybe we're seeing convergence towards that in one or two cases
16:49:12 [npdoty]
... that will take a little while, and a lot of work
16:49:34 [jchester2]
Thomas--We need an answer to Jonathan's questions.
16:49:36 [Chapell]
Aleecia: I'm not sure why the decision needed to be communicated to the press prior to the WG at all. Perhaps this is common in the W3C?
16:49:41 [npdoty]
jmayer: didn't get an answer, is there estoppel at work regarding the decisions that have been made
16:49:51 [npdoty]
tlr: the Working Group decision on ISSUE-215 stands
16:49:58 [npdoty]
jmayer: so are those amendments prohibited in future?
16:49:58 [susanisrael]
*Rigo, was that a serious comment?
16:50:09 [fielding]
no, "those sorts" are not included in the objections considered.
16:50:11 [rvaneijk]

Can Shane propose the Red/Yellow/Green de-identification plan?
16:50:37 [npdoty]

"Having considered the points above, we will not accept change proposals that are merely re-statements of these elements from the DAA proposal."

16:51:17 [aleecia]
Alan: I don't have a problem with the co-chairs notifying press about major decisions in the TPWG. I'm not sure why that would be problematic. At a social level, sure, no one hear likes reading about decisions in the press rather than on our mailing list. But it is not substantive.

16:55:49 [Zakim]
16:55:53 [npdoty]

So are we basically saying that the affirmative decision to move forward may happen, but if so will happen at a later date due to personal obligations?
17:05:16 [npdoty]
aleecia: I have heard that decision to move forward hinged on the idea of making an affirmative decision to move forward at the end at Sunnyvale
17:05:21 [tlr]
17:05:22 [rvaneijk]
the date is in the explenatory memorandum !!!
17:05:25 [Chris_IAB]
Yes, that was exactly the decision made in Sunnyvale
17:05:37 [npdoty]
Lmastria_DAA: heard that it was the 24th, but maybe not at Sunnyvale
17:05:43 [tlr]
text from sunnyvale: "At the close of the Face-to-Face Meeting on May 6-8, 2013 in Sunnyvale, the Tracking Protection Working Group has consensus that there was sufficient progress during the meeting to merit moving ahead with the Do Not Track standard, toward the July 2013 Last Call deadline."
17:05:44 [Chris_IAB]

17:06:44 [npdoty]
tlr: result was accepting the consensus action summary
17:06:49 [fielding]
To clarify, I am all for a "break", preferably until the end of August, if the first thing we make a decision on at the end of that break is a WD publication and/or closure of the WG.

17:07:20 [susanisrael]
Did we also not take a vote on one of the calls as to whether we would vote on July 24?
17:07:24 [johnsimpson]
There have been repeated comments that we would need an affirmative decision of the group to work past that.
17:07:25 [npdoty]
aleecia: very helpful, exactly the form of answer
17:07:26 [rvaneijk]
minutes Juli 10: peterswire: What I've said before is that we need an affirmative decision by the group about whether to continue after July, and the way to do that is to have input on this fork in the road.
17:07:40 [rigo]
17:07:48 [npdoty]
... text doesn't have such affirmative decision language, but some people in the group believe it is
17:07:50 [rvaneijk]

17:17:10 [npdoty]
... also on July 10th and explanatory memo
17:17:31 [johnsimpson]
+1 Jonathan.
17:17:48 [Walter]
Chapell: minus the attacks on the chairs I pretty much agree on being very confused
17:17:48 [npdoty]
... seems now there may be an implicit decision otherwise, I find that unacceptable, going against a clear process that we had an understanding of before
17:17:49 [aleecia]
(for scribing, jmayer is going through point by point places where Peter said we needed an affirmative decision to continue.)
17:18:02 [npdoty]
... not sure what W3C process is regarding that
17:18:24 [npdoty]
... 2) we don't know now which commitments from the chair are firm and which aren't
17:18:37 [Chapell]
This cuts at my question re: process. The WG is somehow supposed to KNOW what Peter's criteria were for his decision. Conversely, the WG is also supposed to KNOW not to take Peter's previous committment to end of july deadline
17:18:53 [Chapell]
+1 Jmayer
17:19:15 [npdoty]
... haven't answered johnsimpson question about how long it will take, or my question regarding amendments allowed, or Aleecia regarding past WD
17:19:25 [aleecia]
Alan: as per the formal decision process, the co-chairs owe the group a formal, written response on the last decision.
17:19:30 [npdoty]
... if we don't have that clarity, don't know how we can continue
17:19:30 [susanisrael]

17:20:23 [jmayer]
My first point: the chairs again and again reaffirmed that a deadline extension would require an "affirmative decision." The chairs have no departed from that process.
17:20:35 [Walter]
17:20:42 [npdoty]
dan_auerbach_: appreciate all the work the chairs have done, agree you're working very hard, share concerns about no longer needing an affirmative decision to go forward
17:20:50 [npdoty]
... sentiment in the room right now is different from that of the chairs
17:21:01 [tlr]
ack thomas

danA: want a straw-poll
17:21:08 [npdoty]
... is there an objection to a vote, regardless of how the vote is interpreted
17:21:15 [jmayer]
My second point: 1) we don't know what commitments are firm or mere "dicta", 2) we don't know how long this path forward is supposed to take, 3) we don't know what amendments are in order, 4) we don't know which base text we're using (ISSUE-214)
17:21:20 [Walter]
I object to taking a break
17:21:26 [Walter]
that in itself is an affirmative decission
17:21:28 [Walter]
17:21:28 [jmayer]
This is not a clear path forward. This is the absence of a clear path forward.
17:21:42 [jmayer]
I think a straw poll would be valuable here.
17:21:47 [npdoty]
schunter: plan not clear enough to taking a vote/poll, want to take a break, and come back
17:21:47 [Walter]
17:21:50 [johnsimpson]
Matthias, That is NOT what we agreed
17:21:50 [rigo]
17:21:52 [jchester2]
Let's do a vote for the record. There is a sense that the Co-Chairs and WC3 staff do not have the confidence of the group.
17:22:17 [npdoty]
dan_auerbach_: July deadline will have passed, for WG members that do not believe it's a legitimate process after July that's a problem
17:22:17 [Walter]
It is not uncommon for a group then to take an explicit decision on that
17:22:23 [jchester2]
Does the Chair and Thomas refuse to hold a straw poll vote?
17:22:26 [johnsimpson]
So when will the next deadline be? July 2014?
17:22:37 [Chapell]
17:22:41 [npdoty]
schunter: deadline in the charter, but not unusual to change LC publication deadlines
17:22:46 [rigo]
ack ri
17:22:47 [jmayer]
Could we just have a straw poll in IRC?
17:22:51 [yrlesru]
A vote without a clear proposal makes no sense. And votes seem to be not preferred by W3C procedures?
17:22:54 [npdoty]
... don't see a way to get consensus to publish a LC, even if we work 24 hours
17:23:14 [jmayer]
Straw polls are a routine part of W3C procedure.
17:23:18 [npdoty]
rigo: vote is far too black and white for me
17:23:40 [jmayer]
Proposed question: "Does the group agree to extend the July deadline?"
17:23:43 [npdoty]
... chairs' assessment is that they want to base their way forward on the June draft
17:23:44 [dwainberg]
17:23:55 [jmayer]
17:23:58 [jchester2]
Would Tim Berners-Lee agree that the members of the group shouldn't be asked their opinion?
17:24:13 [npdoty]
... deadline in this room about 31 July precludes everything, with Aleecia agree that it was aspirational
17:24:19 [tlr]
jeff, we're listening to your opinion right now.
17:24:19 [aleecia]
while i find it exceedingly unwise, the co-chair is entirely empowered to not hold a straw poll vote.
17:24:33 [fielding]
fwiw, the LC deadline is something the chairs negotiate with the W3C, not something we get to play with … the deadlines that Peter mentioned were more personal in nature … regardless, taking a break for a few weeks and *then* taking a vote on the way forward is effectively the same as making a decision now.
17:24:43 [jchester2]
Thomas--I am glad you have your sense of humor still intact!
17:24:53 [Walter]
hearing is not the same as listening
17:25:07 [schunter]
schunter has joined #dnt
17:25:17 [npdoty]
rigo: we will listen to you, won't debate endlessly, W3C process is that even if there is dissent you move forward
17:25:22 [jchester2]
17:25:24 [Walter]
fielding: that is my problem exactly
17:25:29 [yrlesru]
Does the group extend the LC vote from July 24 to YYYYMMDD?
17:25:49 [npdoty]
rigo: the deadline, and this affirmative thing, is not to preclude us from going forward
17:25:56 [wseltzer]

17:26:42 [rvaneijk]
17:26:45 [npdoty]
Chapell: I want to understand, it sounds like the chairs want to punt for 2 or 3 weeks, implicit a cooling off period, do we have commitment from the chairs to have a discussion about moving forward before returning to the substance?
17:26:46 [jmayer]
A decision? Or just a discussion?
17:26:55 [aleecia]
john: while any member can open an issue at any time, the chairs do not need to take it up
17:26:57 [npdoty]
tlr: a discussion would be a fine thing
17:27:04 [npdoty]
Chapell: so there would be a go/no-go vote?
17:27:19 [johnsimpson]
Can we open as a formal issue: Should we continue?
17:27:42 [jchester2]
17:27:45 [WileyS]
In summary, there is no opportunity for a go/no-go vote. That path is not supported by the W3C Staff and Co-Chairs.
17:27:45 [npdoty]
schunter: at some point we have to agree, or get a majority of stakeholders to move forward, a Working Group consisting of only two chairs doesn't make sense
17:27:57 [fielding]
Do we have a commitment from the W3C staff that they won't make any more (assinine) comments to the press about our progress until the group is given a chance to determine its own progress?
17:28:03 [aleecia]

... decision of the stakeholders, do they support this path forward? or have an alternative path forward? if we don't have a path forward would work for multiple stakeholders, then it doesn't work
17:28:36 [jmayer]
Matthias has twice now suggested the way to disagree is to exit the group. That's more than a little concerning.
17:28:39 [aleecia]
However, we do need a consensus agreement to publish another WD
17:28:42 [npdoty]
... don't have to agree among all members, a path forward not supported by anyone is a non-starter
17:28:48 [Walter]
WileyS: would you support such a vote?
17:28:51 [tlr]
fielding, "asinine"? Excuse me?
17:29:02 [npdoty]

17:29:08 [Zakim]

thanks Rigo
17:30:33 [tlr]
17:30:34 [aleecia]
so even that is not a go / no go, though it will serve as a rough proxy
17:30:41 [npdoty]
dwainberg: hope and expect the group would have an opportunity to approve or decide to move forward with that process
17:30:50 [WileyS]
Call should be ending now, correct?
17:30:58 [johnsimpson]
What if there is no real path forward?
17:30:59 [aleecia]
nothing ever ends :-)

aleecia, only the AC and the Director have go/no-go authority AFAIK, but may be wrong
