Subject: Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies: Last Call
Working Draft
Date: Tue, 06 Oct 2009 17:39:51 +0200

Hello TAG, HTML WG, XHTML2 WG, WebApps WG, HCG, Web Security Context WG

This is a transition announcement for the Last Call Working Draft of the
Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies, published today at:

This set of guidelines for Web Content Transformation proxies (i.e. non
transparent HTTP proxies) was developed by the W3C Mobile Web Best
Practices Working Group to address some of the needs identified in
particular on mobile networks, in accordance with the working group's
charter [1].

The document was published as Last Call a year ago under the title
"Content Transformation Guidelines", and you had been invited to review
the specification back then. The Working Group received many comments
during the last call review period, and has been working on updating the
guidelines since then. The group believes it has now addressed all the
comments and decided to publish a second Last Call [2]. Status ref.
patent policy is available at [3].

This new Last Call review period extends until 6 November 2009, and we
would be grateful if your group could review the document once more, in
      * for the TAG, since the document still relates to its issue
genericResources-53 and its accompanying finding:
      * for the HTML and XHTML2 Working Groups, since the document makes use
of the (X)HTML link element to give hints on content transformation proxies
      * for the WebApps Working Group, since the document applies to proxies
that may receive requests initiated by XmlHTTPRequest objects.
      * for the HyperText CG, as the official point of liaison with the Open
Mobile Alliance which might want to submit a review on the document
given its implications on the mobile ecosystem.
      * for the Web Security Context WG, for the section on HTTPS link

(The Working Group is also requesting a review from the IETF HTTPBis
Working Group).

If your group wants to submit a review but is unable to provide it in
that timeframe, please let us know so that we can determine a possible
extension of the review period.

The working group has just sent official replies to the commenters of
the previous Last Call. At this point of time, there are no formal

Staff Contact of the Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group
