Hi All,

I'm happy to let you know the group has now addressed the CR blockers. Details below.

Preliminary web-platform-tests have been created:


See the meta issue tracking remaining work (not blocking the CR):

We'd need to demonstrate these changes are implementable, or that they will not cause difficulty of implementation.

The work on the implementation has resumed:

Thanks to the "CR Blocker Resolution Task Force": Mikhail for spec patches, Marcos for reviews, Wanming for w-p-t contributions, and Mrunal for the Chrome implementation update that is currently in progress.

And of course, huge thanks to the spec editors Andrey, Ilya, and Marcos who have diligently edited this specification for over 2.5 years. After numerous WD updates the spec is now about to advance to CR:


Furthermore, we have hit another milestone by addressing all "v1" spec issues. This is a prerequisite for advancing the spec to CR (thanks Dom for pointing this out!). The remaining issues are v2 feature #84 and meta issue tracking w-p-t test progress #111:


The next step is a Call for Consensus to request publication of a Candidate Recommendation. I will send a CfC mail to the group's mailing list in the coming days.
