Right now we have two documents: the scenarios for media capture (my document), and the getusermedia draft. The burden for an update to the scenarios document rests on me, and I do plan on making the updates previously requested by Harald and others (in the next week or so). My process for updating the scenarios document is incorporate feedback on the list as it comes in, and to update the draft document as often as time permits (given other priorities this is likely to be about once every few weeks).
Good. What's your target date - before or after the holidays?

Basically, the editors make edits when they percieve that there is 
reason to do so, and push the new version onto the CVS whenever they 
feel it's ready.

If it's clear what needs to be done, we have put things into the tracker 
as tasks and followed up on them from there; the WebRTC group yesterday 
decided that we'd try to use Bugzilla instead of the W3C tracker for a 
while and see if that works better.

Do you think we have concrete changes that we have consensus on making 
at this point?
