Scope

In addition to the HTML5 specification itself, the IG may review other Open Web Platform related specifications produced by other W3C groups.

Along with reviewing the HTML5 specification and related specifications, it is expected that the group will also gather comments and questions about those specifications, collect information about specific use cases for using technologies defined in those specifications in Chinese, and report the results of its activities as a group back to the HTML Working Group, as well as to other relevant groups and to the W3C membership and community.

The success of the HTML5 Chinese Interest Group will be evaluated based on how productively it engages with W3C members in China and the global Chinese-speaking community to promote discussion of HTML5 and related specifications, and how effectively it is able to to help produce supplementary documents for the refinement, implementation, and adoption of HTML5 and related technologies in the worldwide Chinese-speaking community.

Deliverables

The HTML5 Chinese IG will not produce Recommendation-track deliverables but a working draft of the Requirements for Chinese Text Layout in both English and Chinese as a Interest Group Note in 2014. Once the FPWD of this layout requirements is published, the HTML5 Chinese IG would work with the Internationalization Working Group to take this document further, to widen the exposure and review of the document. It may also produce other Interest Group Notes on HTML5 and related technologies, the contents of which might include (but by no means be explicitly limited to) the following:

The group may also choose to produce other non-normative deliverables, such as test cases and error reports — under the terms of the Policies for Contribution of Test Cases to W3C, and in coordination with any relevant working groups.

The HTML5 Chinese IG will produce its deliverables according to whatever schedule its collective time, interest, and resources permit. Updated information about the status of the activities of the group and any of its publication milestones is available at the HTML5 Chinese Interest Group page.

Dependencies and Liaisons

The HTML5 Chinese Interest Group has no formal dependencies on any other W3C Working Groups, but is expected to raise issues that relate to language, script or cultural support to the appropriate W3C Working Groups, and to report information related to the HTML5 specification back to the HTML Working Group, and to optionally report information about HTML5-related specifications back to other Working Groups; the groups it might choose to report information back to include (but by no means be explicitly limited to) the following:

The HTML5 Chinese Interest Group is also expected to take advantage of opportunities for discussion and collaboration with existing HTML5-related groups and communities working in Chinese.

Participation

Participation in the HTML5 Chinese IG is open both to W3C members and to public participants. Individuals who wish to join the group should follow the steps for joining documented on the HTML5 Chinese Interest Group page. Any person joining the group must do so with the understanding that Chinese is the principle language for communication in the group.

There are no minimum requirements for “good standing” in the group, and otherwise no minimum requirements for participation (other than an expectation that effective participation in the group requires some degree of ability to understand and communicate in Chinese).

The Team Contact and the chairs should host either one public teleconferences or online meeting twice a month. Any meetings the group schedules will be announced on the public-html-ig-zh@w3.org list.

Communication

HTML5 Chinese IG discussions take place in Chinese. However, any Notes or other reports eventually contributed by a group back to the W3C will be made available in English (or in both English and Chinese).

This HTML5 Chinese IG primarily conducts its work on the publicly archived mailing list public-html-ig-zh@w3.org (archive).For issues related to Chinese text, the CJK mailing list (English) public-i18n-cjk@w3.org (archive) should be used to communicate the results of discussion on the public-html-ig-zh list with a wider audience of internationalization experts.

The group will use the HTML5 Chinese Interest Group page and Wiki to provide updated public information about its activities.

Decision Policy

As explained in the Process Document (section 3.3), this group will seek to make decisions when there is consensus. When the Chair puts a question and observes dissent, after due consideration of different opinions, the Chair should record a decision (possibly after a formal vote) and any objections, and move on.

The HTML5 Chinese Interest Group provides an opportunity to share perspectives on the topic addressed by this charter. W3C reminds Interest Group participants of their obligation to comply with patent disclosure obligations as set out in Section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy. While the Interest Group does not produce Recommendation-track documents, when Interest Group participants review Recommendation-track specifications from Working Groups, the patent disclosure obligations do apply.
