[Minutes] Audio WG teleconference 2013-02-14

From: Chris Lowis <chris.lowis@bbc.co.uk>
Date: Fri, 15 Feb 2013 11:29:30 +0000
To: WebAudio <public-audio@w3.org>
Message-ID: <m08v6pq0h1.fsf@rd00051.national.core.bbc.co.uk>

The minutes of the group's teleconference are now on line:


In attendance were: Chris Rogers, Chris Wilson, Doug Schepers, Giri
Mandyam and myself.

We discussed two main topics:

1) Chris Rogers talked us through the clarifications he has made to the
multi-channel layouts section of the spec
(http://www.w3.org/TR/webaudio/#UpMix). We had a discussion about them
and those on the call agreed that this was an improvement. We also noted
and thanked Robert for his comments on list. I'd encourage you all to go
and have a read through and to raise any feedback you have on the list.

2) We discussed the possible creation of a "version 1" of the Web Audio
spec. The aim of such a move would be to make it easier for browser
vendors to implement the spec such that we can see real-world
implementations in as many browsers as possible and move forward to
candidate recommendation as soon as possible with all the required
documentation and testing. There was consensus that both of these things
would be good, however it was difficult to see how to split the spec in
such a way to make this useful to developers, easier for vendors and not
cause a lot of difficult work for the spec editor.

It would be very useful to have the thoughts of some of the people on
this list who are attempting their own implementations to see whether
such a move would be useful. Chris Rogers noted that the pace of
additions to the spec is slowing down, deliberately to reduce the
problem of a "moving target", and maybe this will be all that's

We planned to discuss the MIDI security issues, but decided not to given
the attendees.

Thanks all!
