The CfC to transition Microdata to CR failed in November 2012.   The only objections to this CfC were about whether the Microdata specification should be on the Recommendation track.  

These objections were documented in Bug 20082 [1].  These objections have now been resolved by the WG Decision based on a preference poll that indicated the HTML WG wanted the Microdata specification to remain on the Recommendation track [2].

With the only objections dealt with and with ample support, this resolution now passes.

Subject: CfC: Request transition of HTML Microdata to Candidate Recommendation

In accordance with both the W3C process's requirement to record the group's decision to request advancement[1], and with the steps identified in the "Plan 2014" CfC[2], this is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to request transition to CR for the following document:

http://htmlwg.org/cr/microdata/Overview.html

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged. If there are no objections by Monday, November 26th, this resolution will carry.

Considerations to note:

- A request to advance indicates that the Working Group believes the specification is stable and appropriate for implementation.

- The specification MAY still change based on implementation experience.

- Sam Ruby, on behalf of the W3C co-chairs
