From W3C Wiki
This article is a stub. You can help the W3C wiki by expanding it.
The AB refers to the W3C Advisory Board.
W3C process improvements are discussed in the community group:
Editor's draft of Recommendation Track Process changes, draft proposal
Freshly created 2013-06-04, there's an unofficial @W3CAB Twitter account.
It would be great to grant permission to every AB member to post anything regarding AB-related matters.
The methodology is to empower individual responsibility and trust by default, especially in such a small group. This method has worked well with the CSSWG (any CSSWG member may "have the keys" to @CSSWG) and it's been hugely successful in engaging the broader developer community.
I (Tantek Çelik) ran for the AB on a platform of greater openness in how we do things. As part of that, feel free to add your suggestions for improving the AB and W3C Process as a whole here and I'll see what I can about them. I'm going to encourage other AB members to similarly consider using input from the wiki as another source. Thanks, - Tantek Çelik 04:44, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Minor Process Tweaks
The Process document hasn't really been maintained in many years. There's talk of overhauling the Process, but meanwhile, how about making some simple changes that address particularly frustrating points in the Process?
- Allowing REC to refer to CR (treating PR as a transitional phase, like LC). fantasai 04:52, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
- Creating a "Proposed Edited Candidate Recommendation" stage (or pick a better name) to allow CRs to be updated without going back to Working Draft. This would be identical to LC--just a renaming of an existing process--so qualifies as a Dead Simple Change. fantasai 04:52, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
- What about simply combining LC and CR, and allowing a document in that phase to be updated and stay at that phase? - Tantek Çelik 14:30, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
