Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group News

Looking for Content Transformation Proxies that conform to the guidelines — 18 June 2010

The Mobile Web Best Practices working group published the Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies as a W3C Candidate Recommendation yesterday.

This means that the specification is now considered stable. The Working Group would thus like to invite Content Transformation Proxies vendors willing to claim conformance to the specification to let themselves known, so that an implementation report can be assembled.

Due to the unique nature of the specification, it may be worth pointing out a few points:

  1. The group is not looking for claims of conformance from products. It is rather looking for claims of conformance from Transformation Deployments, in other words from instances of products.
  2. Claiming conformance to the specification means filling out an Implementation Conformance Statement and sending it to the public mailing-list (with public archives). The goal of this ICS is to specify the reasons for non-compliance with any clause at the should level in the guidelines.
  3. Claims of conformance will be evaluated by the working group to create the implementation report. Two claims of conformance are required before the specification may be allowed to move forward.

Feel free to get in touch with me (Francois Daoust) if you would like to know more about the evaluation process.

The working group would also like to invite developers from the community willing to contribute to the development of a test case repository for the guidelines, to be composed of challenge test cases to let themselves known on the public mailing-list.
