[ Since we are not having our usual "heartbeat" teleconferences, I suspect it is difficult for some of us to keep up to date with the activity of the group. I will try to provide a summary of activity every couple of weeks, linked from the wiki. This is a retrospective entry for the weeks between 12th June and 30th of June.]

Having migrated all our issues from Tracker to Bugzilla one week before, a lot of the discussions in the second half of June happened in there. 

* JavaScriptAudioNode processing in workers
	https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17415
Still unresolved, the issue is about whether audio processing should happen only in Workers, or whether the choice should be left to developers, and if so, whether there should be an obvious/recommended/hard to avoid default.

* AudioParam sampling
	https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17399
The discussion revolves around “how the AudioParam values (ramps or AudioNode input) are sampled”. Nearing resolution after a few rounds of edits in the spec.

* Naming of AudioParam.setTargetValueAtTime (and similar methods)
	https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17334
No debate about the functionality in itself (there was a request to better define it, which made it into a recent changeset) but the naming seem to puzzle many, including members of the group. A proposal to rename the group of methods (https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17334#c4) seems to be well liked, but  is yet to make it to the spec.

Also of interest… 

* Doug started an interesting and important thread on testing. 
	http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-audio/2012AprJun/thread.html#msg739
The group is looking for someone (or several people) to lead the test effort, and the conversation moved towards the possible approaches to automated testing of the spec. 


There were a number of closed issues and resolutions:

* AudioParam.units were removed from the web audio API spec
	https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17331

* The issue on Node creation syntax was dropped
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17408
