To clarify the status of the shelved DAP specification, Iíve prepared a bunch of W3C Working Group Notes:

Agreed. No need to publish an update of this one.

Yep. The contents of the W3C Working Group Notes is pruned down to:

* The standard headers (spec name, maturity, pub date, /TR links, editors, boilerplate)
* Abstract (from the latest published version)
* Status of This Document (identical in all the specifications)

This minimalistic template has been used before as Wayne pointed out, for example see:


I will generate the HTML snapshots ready for publication within a week or after the group is happy with the wording and the template. FWIW, this minimalistic template seems to pass both pubrules and link checker.

Please review and let us know if you identify any issues. I set the publication date tentatively to 09 January 2014, but this can be changed if needed.
