Dear Mr Peterson, Mr Jennings, Mrs Dusseault and Mr Newman,

On behalf of the W3C Geolocation Working Group:

With regard to your liaison statement of 21 Nov 2008; we acknowledge
the design request of the GEOPRIV Working Group and have been
discussing it within the Geolocation Working Group.

The Geolocation WG withheld publishing the First Public Working
Draft of the API document until hearing from GEOPRIV WG members.

The Geolocation WG has not thus far been persuaded to adopt the
solutions brought forth by the GEOPRIV members.  This is
being tracked at:
http://www.w3.org/2008/geolocation/track/issues/4

We have requested further feedback from the review community in
the form of a note in a section of our draft entitled "Privacy
considerations for recipients of location information", which is
available at:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-geolocation-API-20081222/#privacy_for_

In addition we are currently tracking feedback on that section at:
http://www.w3.org/2008/geolocation/track/issues/5

Sincerely,

-Matt Womer
