Here is an update on Tracking Protection Working Group progress:
- This week the group published new drafts of Tracking Compliance and Scope and Tracking Preference Expression (DNT).
- Today Chair Matthias Schunter announced a stable plan to reach Last Call.
- We are poised to announce new co-Chairs, replacing Peter Swire who announced last month his departure for President Obama’s Review Group.
With a concrete plan and a full set of Chairs, the Working Group is set to proceed to Last Call with renewed momentum.
I mention this today because the DAA has announced their withdrawal from the Working Group. I hope that DAA continues to monitor this work. As they see progress and momentum, they should rejoin W3C’s consensus process.
W3C will continue to provide updates about Working Group progress.
