Hey guys!

Just wanted to forward this along for the sake of anyone that isn’t subscribed to the HTML WG mailing list.

Now, this doesn’t represent a huge milestone in and of itself—it doesn’t mean we’re any more or less likely to see the `picture` spec as a First Public Working Draft. It *does* give us our next steps on the way to a FPWD, and a rough timeline.

The web standards process isn’t quick or easy, but we are making steady progress.

> There seemed to be agreement on the call that the HTML WG should consider your publication request along with an upcoming request to publish the srcset extension specification [1] in January since the srcset author would like some time to process some bugs filed on that specification.
> Note that since the functionality in the <picture> extension proposal [2] overlaps with the functionality in the srcset attribute proposal it was felt that it might be best if the two documents included something in their Status sections to answer the question "Why is the WG publishing two overlapping extension specs?".  I suggest you work with the srcset attribute author to see if you can agreement on that kind of text.
> The WG Chairs will bring this item forward in January or sooner if we see progress on the srcset attribute proposal bugs.
