agendum 2. "Future of Canvas Sub Group" taken up [from MarkS]
22:08:29 [MarkS]
MS: The HTML WG Chairs have decided to convert the current sub-group to a Canvas Task Force under the HTML WG. They have requested that we compose a draft scope for the Task Force and to nominate one or more facilitators to be considered by the WG chairs.
22:09:30 [MarkS]
MS: TF participants?
22:09:36 [MarkS]

agendum 3. "Stabilizing Level 2" taken up [from MarkS]
22:14:46 [MarkS]
MS: the Staff Contacts for HTML were not a fan of stabilizing a level 2 and starting a level 3 for cherry picking.
22:15:08 [MarkS]
JM: I think we could work this way.
22:15:40 [MarkS]
...not sure what happens if we mark a section has do not change and the WHAT WG spec changes, would we get notified?
22:16:34 [MarkS]
MS: I could follow up to see if there is a way we can monitor changes like that
22:17:19 [MarkS]
JM: there is a report that highlights changes of interest to canvas editors. would be great if those could still happen even if they didn't land so we could evaluate the changes.
22:19:42 [MarkS]
RC: I think we move forward like this.
22:20:27 [MarkS]
JM: in the past, we had our own draft, separate from the main repository
22:21:38 [MarkS]
MS: we can create heartbeat drafts every 6 months or so
22:22:57 [MarkS]
...and mark sections as experimental or under development
22:23:54 [MarkS]
JM: brought changes from L1 to L2, Hit Regions to a certain extend and drawFocus.
22:24:04 [MarkS]
...Rik, you had mentioned other sections that need to be brought into sync
22:24:26 [MarkS]
RC: that was when I thought we would be branching
22:26:23 [MarkS]
...i think we need to branch
22:26:48 [MarkS]
MS: I think we have to work in master branch
22:26:57 [MarkS]
JM: we can just mark sections as experimental
22:28:16 [cabanier]
sections of concern: new APIs on Path2D that combine paths and work with text
22:28:26 [cabanier]
mention of canvas workers
