Hi all,

Just an FYI as I'm not sure how many task force members have been
following the copious  discussions regarding the topic of responsive
images on the WHATWG mailing list*. There have been proposals for
<picture>, @srcset, and now <pic>. Ian added  a new attribute called
"srcset" to the WHATWG HTML spec in May. Today,  David Singer started
a thread [1] regarding  alt text.

Best Regards,
Laura
