This CfC passes with no concerns.

Fuqiao volunteered to prepare the spec for the FPWD publication (thanks!).

I suggest we use the repo name ("geolocation-sensor") as the TR shortname and attempt to publish the FPWD at the earlier opportunity. My interpretation is that the Geolocation Sensor spec is not a "delta specification" [1] to the Geolocation API since there's only an informative reference to it, and no intent to supersede the Geolocation API (no technical reason they couldn't coexist). If someone feels otherwise, please let us know.

Fuqiao - feel free to craft the transition request too.

Thanks,

-Anssi (Devices and Sensors WG co-chair)
