Hi Paul,

I reviewed the change and there was one minor editorial change pertaining
to the table of contents. I have given that to Philippe. Once he has
completed that close Issue-131 please.

I did meet with Maciej about some additional modifications for canvas to
better align with the development community surrounding Issue 131. These
would be new requirements that I will open a defect on after Last Call.
Also, for completeness, there were points that we did raise to the chairs
in response to the decision that were not addressed:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Apr/0394.html

and, a clarification to baseline and 508 requirements as requested by the
chairs:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Apr/0423.html

These were not addressed by the chairs so we will ask to address these in
new defects logged post last call.

Thank you,
Rich

Subject: Final decision on Issue-131

Background history on Issue-131 and basis for the Chairs' final decision on
how we are to proceed on this issue:

We had a WG decision for Issue-131 which was posted on the 11th of April
[1].  According to the prior agreed upon Last Call schedule [2] this WG
decision was to be implemented by the 22nd of April.

There was some disagreement as to how to implement the WG decision.  Since
Issue-152 finished early the Chairs agreed [3] to allow discussion on
Issue-132 to proceed until May 8th [4] in the hopes that consensus could be
reached.  Since that time two candidate diffs [5][6] have been produced.

It is now May 10th and we regret to report that consensus has not been
achieved.  By the W3C Process [7] it now falls to the Chairs to record a
decision where there is dissent so that the Working Group may make
progress.

Given that both alternatives have received objections, the way the Chairs
have decided to proceed is to treat any objection that was not presented
during the period between the first call for change proposals [8] on the
18th of January and the closing of the survey [9] on the 31st of March as
potential New Information [10].  Such New Information may result in the
reopening of the WG decision during the Last Call period but was excluded
from consideration by the Chairs on the matter of how to proceed with the
choice between the two available diffs.

As we are unaware of any objections to the following diff that meets the
above criteria, we have selected the following diff as the one to be
applied:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Apr/att-0657/canvascarseldecision20110426.html


Therefore:

1) We ask for this diff to be applied no later than the end of day on the
Thu 12th of May.  If this diff is not applied by that time we will instruct
W3C staff to make this change.

2) Once the diff is applied and verified we will close Issue-131.

Those that wish to provide New Information with an accompanying Change
Proposal are welcome to do so once the above two steps are complete.  Be
advised that if Issue-131 is reopened by the Chairs then it will be
reopened as an issue to be resolved during Last Call.

3) We ask that bugs be entered for any remaining changes that have been
discussed and further ask that any changes in response to those bugs be
posted for discussion prior to being committed.  We encourage everybody who
is interested in this topic to add themselves to the CC lists for such new
bugs.
