Nothing. HTML WG is not taking the draft to Last Call at this time. We  
haven't yet discussed in detail the HTML WG's criteria for going to  
Last Call with a draft. I propose that at the very least we need to do  
the following:

1) Resolve all bugzilla bugs and tracker issues (up to some cutoff  
date, after which new issues would be considered Last Call issues).
2) Define CR Exit Criteria (including what features will be labeled At  
Risk).
3) Pass a Working Group resolution to enter Last Call, by lazy  
consensus or vote/poll.

I haven't discussed a projected timeline with my co-chairs, but it is  
my personal judgment that by these criteria, we can get to Last Call  
sometime in the first half of calendar 2010.

Personally, I'd like to be able to estimate a realistic target date  
for HTML WG HTML5 Last Call. We have missed the previous estimates of  
Q2 2008 and October, 2009. To make a realistic estimate, we need to  
decide as a Working Group what our Last Call criteria will be, and get  
a sense of how quickly we can move through the tracker issues.

Regards,
Maciej
