The Chairs have evaluated the feedback we have received on this publication CfC and have decided that we will go ahead with the publication of the ten heartbeat documents.

> We are planning to prepare and publish the drafts during the week of March 5 and probably on Tue March 6.

These documents will be published as soon as possible.  The Chairs are working with the HTML5 editor to ensure that the WG Decisions for issues 133, 150 and 180 are included in the published HTML5 specification.

Mike:  Can you provide us we a revised estimate of the publication date given that the Chairs decision is only being provided today?

Subject: CfC: Publish ten heartbeat drafts as WDs

This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to publish new revisions of the following documents in accordance with the Working Group Heartbeat requirements. We are planning to prepare and publish the drafts during the week of March 5 and probably on Tue March 6. 

1. HTML5: http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/ 
2. HTML+RDFa: http://dev.w3.org/html5/rdfa/ 
3. HTML Microdata: http://dev.w3.org/html5/md/ 
4. HTML Canvas 2D Context: http://dev.w3.org/html5/2dcontext/  
5. HTML: The Markup Language: http://dev.w3.org/html5/markup/   
6. HTML/XHTML  Compatibility Authoring Guidelines: http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-xhtml-author-guide/html-xhtml-authoring-guide.html
7. HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives: http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/
8. "HTML5 diffs from HTML4" document to reflect the latest changes.  http://dev.w3.org/html5/html4-differences/
9. HTML to Platform Accessibility APIs Implementation Guide: http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/html-api-map/raw-file/tip/Overview.html
10. HTML5: Edition for Web Authors: http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec-author-view/ 

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged. If there are no objections by Tue Feb 28 this CfC resolution will carry.

Considerations to note:

- As a Working Draft publication, the document does not need not be complete, to meet all technical requirements, or to have consensus on the contents.
- Objections may be made on specific documents but not on others. Counting the differences document, there are effectively eight different documents under consideration at this time.
- Drafts that are currently in Last Call will reflect resolution of Last Call Issues for which there is a WG Decision and all Last Call bugs processed by the respective Editors. This includes HTML5, HTML+RDFa, HTML Microdata, HTML Canvas 2D Context, HTML/XHTML Compatibility Authoring Guidelines, and HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives. For some of these documents, however, some tracker issues remain to be resolved.
