Once the CfC completes this Friday, assuming no objection, we should plan to publish a WG Note.

I think you could help by preparing a publication draft and I can make the publication request.

Creating a publication draft means

first updating ReSpec source (I think it is cleaner to edit Note.src.html)

1. updating the document metadata, such as the previousPublishDate and previousMaturity,  publication date of 23 May 2013 (I assume this will be possible), specStatus of WG-NOTE

2. Updating the status section as discussed, including summary of changes, link to planned diff file

3. save as HTML (Note.html)

4. Running validation, link check and pubrules on HTML (spell if ambitious, all comma tools)

5. creating diff file (Dom's new comma tool should help here)

If you are able to do this, I can make the publication request preferably on Monday or Tuesday and if ok with web master can be published on Thursday.

regards, Frederick

Looks good to me. Shall I make this change and publish it, or is that something you need to do?

I think we can handle the status of the Web Intents neatly by publishing as a WG WG Note ( as Art suggested in his response to the CfC).

In conjunction with publishing as a W3C WG Note, I would suggest adding the following text as part of the revision of the status section of the document:

"This document was produced by the Web Activities Task Force, a joint activity of the Device APIs Working Group (linked) and the Web Applications Working Group (linked). Members of these working groups have agreed  not to progress the Web Intents specification further as a Recommendation track document, electing to publish it as an informative Working Group Note. The Working Groups have not performed interop testing on the material in this document. Implementers are cautioned that this material is subject to change and that an alternative design may be pursued in the future."

This can be followed by a summary of changes since the last Working Draft publication (and redline)

I suggest we do this assuming there is support and no objection to this approach - comments are welcome ( CfC closes this Friday 17 May, so responses to CfC on list re publishing Web Intents as WG Note would be useful).

regards, Frederick

I would rather not move them to notes too fast. As noted in the meeting I think the issues with intents and activities UI need more investigation before we pull the plug.
