Tracking Protection Working Group Teleconference

23 January 2017

Meeting Minutes

Bert. Interesting observation was that this is fully public (no member only content).

-Web-page needs updating once charter is done

We have David Singer as the second editor of TPE.

<moneill> baycloud.com/bouncerDownload

<wileys> Mike says he has over 3000 implementors, correct?

<wileys> Only HTTP-equiv? No standard header implementations?



<moneill> wileys, we have sites that return Tk headers directly, also medium.com

<wileys> Great - sad news about medium.com business model proving to be a failure (no tracking / personalizaiton of ads)

<moneill> wiley, more like an early pivot

<wileys> Time will tell...

<wileys> +q

<wileys> This breaks the intendended purpose of the well-known resource

<wileys> Now you wouldn’t be able to PREVIEW a site’s DNT status prior to visiting the site

<wileys> This is why it was created in the first place

<wileys> Would be better to have a sub-domain policy structure display

<wileys> You could have multiple well-known resources for the same page this way as well. Which one rules?

<wileys> In the large site / one place scenario - a site could CNAME the sub-sites all to the same well-known resource

<wileys> I’d rather look at solutions thatallowfor sub-site listings within the parent domain well-konwn resource

Shane: Concerns that having http-equv and being able to set tracking status resources per page will make transparency obsolete.

I think I dropped.

<wileys> You did - please join again


Let us end the call and continue discussing issue 15 next time.

I will send a summary to the list.

I think I have all info to send a summary to the list.

<Bert> OK, that's Feb 6 then.

<wileys> Okay - Thank you Matthias!

Bert: Is there a way to ensure that an email discussion is somehow linked to the github issues?

(like tracker that collected the related email and auto-attached it to an issue)?

<Bert> The only way I know is to ask Github to send you e-mail when an issue is chnaged and then when you reply to that mail, the reply is added to the issue thread.

ok. thanks
