The W3C Web Applications (WebApps) Working Group is chartered to create specifications that enable improved client-side application development on the Web, including specifications both for application programming interfaces (APIs) for client-side development and for markup vocabularies for describing and controlling client-side application behavior.
See the WebApps' Publication Status page for a list of all of the specs in progress and their publication status.
The group's WorkMode wiki defines how the group actually operates in practice and enumerates various group resources including the mailing lists used for technical discussions.
See the group's PubStatus page for the latest publication status regarding all of the group's specifications, in particular:

The WG's Testing wiki describes the WG's testing process and included links to various related resources (e.g. the Hg/Mercurial repository for the WG's test suites).
Our meetings minutes are Publicly available.
Bugs, Issues and Actions Tracking
The WebApps WG uses the W3C Tracker tool to: a) track of issues for a few of the group's specifications; and b) to track administrative type actions. For more information about Tracker see the Tracker Guidelines.
Coordination with Other Working Groups
The Web developer community is actively encouraged to participate in the technical discussion on our mailing lists, to provide scenarios and requirements, create tests, and review and comment on our technical specifications. All technical discussion takes place on our public mailing lists or in our occasional meetings.
In addition to general public participation, the WebApps WG consists of representatives from W3C Members and Invited Experts.
Only editors of specifications, or testing leads, are invited to formally join the WebApps WG and asked to commit to Royalty-Free licensing for Intellectual Property (IP). See our policy on Invited Experts for more details.
