Items closing this week

WG Decision to move Image Description to Candidate Recommendation


The Chairs have done the transition request. There has been an initial meeting with the director.

scribe: there has been some pushback and we are waiting the usual time. But expect publication next week as CR.

Pending publications

first item: WG Decision: Request transition of Canvas 2D Context to Candidate Recommendation


The chairs have sent the transition request to the director. Some people are on holiday so we may not see a response until next week.

After scheduling there will be a transition meeting.

Second item: WG Decision: publish "srcset attribute" extension spec as a WG Note


There is nothing holding this up. Trying to find a team contact to get this published.

Third item: Text alternatives WG Note


<paulc_> See http://www.w3.org/2014/08/07-html-a11y-minutes.html#item03

Discussed this recently at the A11Y task force call. Resource challenged but expect it to happen in two weeks (August 21).

<paulc_> Formal objections to this material have been withdrawn: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2014Aug/0003.html

There is no big rush right now. There were two formal objections about the material, but since the items are now notes the objector has withdrawn the objections.

Other Business

a) WG Decision: return DOM4 to Last Call


The next step will be a transition to PR. Chairs are working on transition request.

Will be further discussed via email.

note - first PR transition request from the Chairs.
