> Hi,
> 
> The current charter [1] of our Working Group will expire at the end of
> June this year; it is pretty clear that our work will not be done by
> then and thus will need to extend or renew our charter.
> 
> Given that our understanding of the work that needs to be done has
> evolved quite a bit, and also due to the lack of involvement of
> potential implementors of our work in the group, the Chairs and Staff
> Contacts are suggesting that we should try to refine our charter and
> have it reviewed by W3C Advisory Committee.
> 
> To that end, I've been working on a proposed new charter for the group:
> http://www.w3.org/2010/11/DeviceAPICharter.html

> 
> This charter introduces several important changes — which are all up for
> discussion.
> 
> The most important change is the removal of the Policy Framework as a
> deliverable of the group. That proposed change is motivated by the
> following reasons:
> * the work has only had limited traction in the group so far,
> * the policy framework is architecturally independent of the APIs, while
> its bundling with our work on APIs has been the source of
> misunderstandings from potential implementors.
> 
> To reflect the removal of the said framework, we're proposing to rename
> the group to "Device APIs Working Group" — although the group would
> still be referred as DAP since that's now a well-known moniker.
> 
> The removal of the Policy Framework doesn't mean that the group would
> stop working on security. On the contrary, the new charter puts a strong
> emphasis on the needs surrounding security and privacy (privacy which
> was actually missing from the previous charter.) We've already received
> feedback that the current wording around security isn't satisfying and
> welcome proposed changes to the text.
> 
> Finally, the new charter tightens the scope of our APIs to reflect the
> ones we've actually been working on — the very broad scope of our
> current charter has been an explicit showstopper for some W3C Members to
> join the group.
