Hi,

As you may remember, the charter of our group is expiring at the end of
this month; in practice, with the upcoming holidays, we have at most two
working weeks left to finalize the new version of the Web Compatibility
Test for Mobile Browsers, and based on what I understand from Wilhelm’s
schedule, we probably have just one week with him around.

So our options with regard to WCTMB2 are:
• finalizing it in the remaining week,
• asking for a one or two months extension to the charter for our group
— I don’t yet if it would be granted, but I’m fairly sure that I would
have to severely reduce my official involvement to the group even if it
was,
• continuing working informally after the group closes — obviously I
would have to reduce my involvement in this case too

I think we should try for each of these options in order, i.e.: try to
finalize the test in the upcoming week as much as we can; if we can’t, I
would try to ask for an extension, and otherwise, I guess we may see if
the tests contributors are still able to contribute after the charter
expires.

(the reasons why I think it makes sense to ask for a short extension to
our charter:
• it makes our work more visible, and gives it clear IPR rules,
• with a short extension, we would still have a clear deadline to match
to finalize the work,
• it may make it easier for some to continue participating under a
formal roof)

Let me know your reactions,

Dom, ACTION-97
