This morning a draft (re-)charter for this WG was sent to the W3C AC for 
review.  I encouraged substantive discussion to happen on the WG's own 
mailing list [1], so you might see some threads starting as people offer 
feedback on the charter.

You are also welcome to offer feedback, of course.  Simple textual 
suggestions may instead be filed as github issues or pull requests:


Here is the charter text:


AC reps should file statements of support/non-support using the form 
linked below.

-- Sam Weiler, W3C

[1] There was also an announcement that invited feedback to the 
public-new-work@w3.org mailing list.  So you might see discussion in 
both places.

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

This is a Call for Review of a proposed revised charter for the Devices 
and Sensors Working Group:


Please review the charter and indicate your support using this online form:


Please also raise any substantive comments on the WG's mailing list 

The deadline for responses is 23:59, Boston time on 25 May 2018.

The most important changes from the previous charter are:
   - Added gyroscope, magnetometer, DeviceOrientation Event, and 
geolocation APIs to the group's deliverables.
   - Removed media capture, address books, messaging applications, and 
similar non-sensor APIs from the group's scope of work.
   - Reduced team support from .2 FTE to .1 FTE.

A diff [1] showing changes between the new and old charter is available.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
Samuel Weiler, Privacy and Security Strategist, at weiler@w3.org.

This charter review follows section 5 of the W3C Process Document:

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
Samuel Weiler, Privacy and Security Strategist;
Xueyuan Jia, Marketing & Communications
