As discussed during the SysApps F2F in April, we tried to push the idea
of a join task force between WebApps and SysApps to work on some topics
like the Manifest and the Runtime specifications. During the WebApps F2F
this proposal has been exposed to the group (thank you Jonas) and the
conclusion was that the WebApps group isn't interested in the Runtime
specification but is quite interested in the Manifest one. They also
prefer to take ownership of the Manifest specification because a joint
task force creates an overhead that participants and W3C administrators
would prefer to avoid.

The manifest is something that we want to push for the Web, as much in a
browsing context than a web application runtime context and having this
work in the WebApps working group is going to help getting traction and
implementations. Keeping this work in SysApps will probably make the
manifest seen as "application only" simply because most of our work is
being done in that context.

By transferring this specification to the WebApps working group, this
group will accept to give the ownership of the specification to the
WebApps working group and make any further work on this specification
happen in this working group. If the group accept to transfer the
specification, the final decision will still be pending on the CfC that
will have to happen in the WebApps WG to take the ownership of it.

If you have any comments or concerns about this CfC, please reply to
this e-mail by May 20 at the latest. Positive response is preferred and
encouraged, and silence will be considered as agreement with the proposal.

Thanks,
