This CfC has completed with support for shelving the Web Intents Addendum, Pick Media Intent, and Pick Contacts Intent specifications.

Based on the CfC mail discussion (and DAP teleconference) we have also agreed  to publish Web Intents as a W3C WG Note to complete work (for now).

As with all shelving (and Notes) the WG may decide to resume this work at any time with the current or a revised approach. 

Thanks to Jungkee for adding a note to the Pick Media Intent and Pick Contacts Intent specifications to mark them as shelved.  I have done the same for the Web Intents Addendum.

I have also  updated the DAP home page to note that Web Intents Addendum, Pick Media Intent, and Pick Contacts Intent  are shelved.

We will go ahead to arrange the publication of Web Intents as a W3C Note and then I will update the DAP page accordingly.

Thanks

regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch, Nokia
Chair, W3C DAP Working Group

As a result we want to be clear to everyone that we may not advance the specifications or that we may change the approach.  This does not mean that we have decided not to advance them, just that there is a question as to the direction and/or progression at this point.

This will require some sharing of proposals on the public list to enable progress. It would be best if we can progress this on the public list by September, so that we can have a meaningful result on the topic at a TPAC F2F.
