Hello,

I'll be sending an agenda shortly for our call tomorrow; this mail
serves as an introduction to our main topic of discussions: our next set
of deliverables.

I'm proposing here a few ideas of deliverables we might want to tackle,
depending on interest and availability.

 * a mobile-oriented performance test - we have discussed this before
the August break, but we need to look back at it, see if we have enough
ideas, or see if we can help another existing project, etc. A possible
approach is to look at it with the perspective of the ongoing work on
the Mobile Web Application Best Practices
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-mwabp-20080729/

 * a set of guidelines on how to write good mobile-oriented test cases -
they don't need to be long or complicated, but could serve as a useful
summary of what we've learned on creating and reviewing test cases for
mobile

 * we could bring some of our time and resources to help build test
suites for W3C groups that are relevant to the mobile context - I'm
thinking in particular to the work on widgets:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-widgets-20080414/
or on geolocation:
http://dev.w3.org/geo/api/spec-source.html
or on the Content Transformation Guidelines:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-ct-guidelines-20080801/

 * we could try to create a more in depth set of test cases for cookies
support (number of cookies accepted, max length, etc)

 * there has been a renewed interest in the Test Harness we developed a
year ago, which serves as a basis for a test harness used by the CSS WG:
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/2008/test-harness/
We could link in merging the two codebases, so that we can benefit from
any work that has been put into it.

Any other ideas or suggestions of what should be our next work items?
