1. Purpose

This section is non-normative.

Performance Timeline [PERFORMANCE-TIMELINE-2] defines primitives that enable web developers to access, instrument, and retrieve various performance metrics from the full lifecycle of a web application. The performance data of various metrics is hosted in PerformanceEntry objects. The type of interface for a PerformanceEntry object is identified with entryType.

This registry is intended to provide a central location for enumerating identified interface types of PerformanceEntry object.

2. Registration Entry Requirements and Update Process

An update to this registry is an addition, change or deletion of an identifier. Any person can request an update to this registry by pull requests to the timing-entrytypes-registry repository. The Web Performance Working Group will place it on an upcoming meeting agenda and notify the requestor. Consideration and disposition of the request is by consensus of the W3C Web Performance Working Group. The Chair will then notify the requestor of the outcome and update the registry accordingly.
