anssiko has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/sensors:

== [meta] Sensor APIs Candidate Recommendation readiness tracker ==
**This meta issue tracks Candidate Recommendation (CR) publication readiness for the following Sensor APIs:**

- Generic Sensor API - https://w3c.github.io/sensors/
- Ambient Light Sensor - https://w3c.github.io/ambient-light/
- Accelerometer - https://w3c.github.io/accelerometer/
- Gyroscope - https://w3c.github.io/gyroscope/
- Magnetometer - https://w3c.github.io/magnetometer/
- Orientation Sensor - https://w3c.github.io/orientation-sensor/

**By publishing these specs as CRs the group:**

* asks the entire W3C membership to provide feedback,
* formally collects implementation experience to demonstrate that the specifications work in practice.

**The formal [CR requirements][1] are the following:**

* [x] must show that the specification has met all Working Group requirements, or explain why the requirements have changed or been deferred,
     - [x] The specs meet the requirements set forth in the [DAS WG Charter](https://www.w3.org/2016/03/device-sensors-wg-charter.html) and satisfy [Sensor Use Cases](https://w3c.github.io/sensors/usecases) as demonstrated in [Motion Sensors Explainer](https://w3c.github.io/motion-sensors/).
* [x] must document changes to dependencies during the development of the specification,
     - New normative references since FPWD:
     - [x] Generic Sensor API: [FEATURE-POLICY] [INFRA] [PAGE-VISIBILITY] [PERMISSIONS]
     - [x] Ambient Light Sensor: [GENERIC-SENSOR] [PERMISSIONS] [WEBIDL]
     - [x] Accelerometer: [INFRA] [SCREEN-ORIENTATION]
     - [x] Gyroscope: [ACCELEROMETER] [INFRA]
     - [x] Magnetometer: [ACCELEROMETER] [INFRA]
     - [x] Orientation Sensor: (none)

* [x] must document how adequate implementation experience will be demonstrated,
  * [x] test suites:
     - Generic Sensor API: [sensors](https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/tree/master/sensors)
     - Ambient Light Sensor: [ambient-light](https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/tree/master/ambient-light) 
     - Accelerometer: [accelerometer](https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/tree/master/accelerometer) 
     - Gyroscope: [gyroscope](https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/tree/master/gyroscope)
     - Magnetometer: [magnetometer](https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/tree/master/magnetometer)
     - Orientation Sensor: [orientation-sensor](https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/tree/master/orientation-sensor)
  * [x] preliminary implementation reports:
     - Generic Sensor API: n/a (an abstract base class)
     - Ambient Light Sensor: https://wpt.fyi/ambient-light
     - Accelerometer: https://wpt.fyi/accelerometer
     - Gyroscope: https://wpt.fyi/gyroscope
     - Magnetometer: https://wpt.fyi/magnetometer
     - Orientation Sensor: https://wpt.fyi/orientation-sensor
  * [x] CR exit criteria
     - Proposal: `The CR exit criterion is two interoperable deployed implementations of each feature.`

* [x] must specify the deadline for comments, which must be at least four weeks after publication, and should be longer for complex documents,
  * Proposal: `This Candidate Recommendation is expected to advance to Proposed Recommendation no earlier than [six weeks after its publication].`

* [x] must show that the specification has received wide review,
  - [x] Wide review received, see tracker https://github.com/w3c/sensors/issues/299
* [x] may identify features in the document as "at risk". These features may be removed before advancement to Proposed Recommendation without a requirement to publish a new Candidate Recommendation.
   - Proposal: `No features are marked as 'at-risk'.`
