This is a Call for Consensus for the Device and Sensors Working Group to
formally discontinue its joint ownership of the Media Capture Task
Force, currently shared with the WebRTC Working Group.
While the Device and Sensors Working Group charter [1] includes work on
specs that have been historically jointly developed with the WebRTC
Working Group, in practice most of the work has been driven by WebRTC
Working Group participants, and the historical reasons for keeping it as
joint work have all but disappeared.

To facilitate the logistics of the work on the Media Capture Task Force,
we are thus suggesting to formally recognize that situation and make the
Media Capture Task Force a task force of only the WebRTC Working Group.

This would mean in particular that the Device and Sensors Working Group
would no longer jointly own the following specifications:

* Media Capture and Stream API
http://www.w3.org/TR/mediacapture-streams/

* MediaStream Recording
http://www.w3.org/TR/mediastream-recording/

* MediaStream Image Capture
http://www.w3.org/TR/image-capture/

* Media Capture Depth Stream Extensions
http://www.w3.org/TR/mediacapture-depth/

* Media Capture from DOM Elements
http://www.w3.org/TR/mediacapture-fromelement/

* Audio Output Devices API
http://www.w3.org/TR/audio-output/

* Screen Capture
http://www.w3.org/TR/screen-capture/

(work on https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-worker/ has been abandoned)

This would also mean removing the said deliverables from our next
charter, as proposed in https://github.com/w3c/dap-charter/issues/27

Positive responses are encouraged, but if there are no objections by 20
Sept 2017, we will proceed with the implementation of the plan proposed
in this CfC.

regards, Frederick
Frederick Hirsch
Chair, W3C Devices and Sensors WG (DAS)
