The Revising W3C Process Community Group is deputized by the AB to edit the W3C Process Document—which is essentially the document that governs how W3C produces standards. We prepare a revision under the AB’s guidance every year in response to issues to submit to the AC for approval.

The CG's Chair is David Singer.

CG Decision Making

On 2014 June 12, Chaals proposed W3Process group use the following decision making process.

Status: under discussion

  • Anyone who wants a decision declared by the CG can make a Call for Consensus (CfC).
  • The CfC should be proposed in an email, with "CfC:" or "Call for Consensus" in the subject line.
  • There should be a clear statement of the resolution that will be adopted, assuming it achieves consensus. I.e. there should be a literal statement.
  • The time allowed for response should be at least two weeks.
  • Discussion of the proposal should not be in the same thread as saying "I agree", or "I disagree", or "I abstain" - to make it easy to determine what is an actual "vote".
  • At the end of the time available for response, the Chair will declare a consensus, or a large majority, if one is apparent.
