FYI. See the forwarded message below and at:

 http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-browser-tools-testing/2012AprJun/0000.html

It's an announcement that the Browser Tools and Testing Working Group has
issued a Call for Consensus for members of that group to indicate whether
they support First Public Working Draft of the WebDriver specification.

The WebDriver API allows Web application to introspect into, and control
the behaviour of, a web browser, and enables Web developers to write tests
that automate a browser from a separate controlling process.

If you wish to comment on the WebDriver spec, you can send a message to the
public-browser-tools-testing@w3.org mailing list (the discussion list for
the Browser Tools and Testing Working Group).

You can subscribe to that list here:

 http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-browser-tools-testing/

But if you want to actively support work on the WebDriver spec going
forward, you should consider joining the Browser Tools and Testing WG:

 https://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/49799/join

(If you join the group, you'll automatically be subscribed to the
public-browser-tools-testing@w3.org mailing list).

Subject: CfC: publish FPWD of WebDriver; deadline June 27
Archived-At: <http://www.w3.org/mid/20120620055058.GA10338@sideshowbarker>

This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to publish a First Public Working Draft
(FPWD) of the WebDriver specification:

 http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webdriver/raw-file/default/webdriver-spec.html

Please send all responses, questions, or comments regarding this CfC to the
public-browser-tools-testing@w3.org mailing list by June 27. Note that
silence will be considered agreement with the proposal to publish.

If you support publication, a positive response on the mailing list (e.g.,
"I/My organization supports FPWD publication of this spec.") is preferred
and encouraged, but not required.

Abstract:

 This specification defines the WebDriver API, a platform-and
 language-neutral interface that allows programs or scripts to introspect
 into, and control the behaviour of, a web browser. The WebDriver API is
 primarily intended to allow developers to write tests that automate a
 browser from a separate controlling process, but may also be implemented
 in such a way as to allow in-browser scripts to control a (separate?)
 browser.

 The WebDriver API is defined by a set of interfaces to discover and
 manipulate DOM elements on a page, and to control the behaviour of the
 containing browser.

 This specification also includes a non-normative reference serialisation
 (to JSON) of the interface's invocations and responses that may be useful
 for browser vendors.

This CfC satisfies the group's requirement to "record the group's 
decision to request advancement".

By publishing this FPWD, the group sends a signal to the community to 
begin reviewing the document. The FPWD reflects where the group is on 
this specification at the time of publication; it does not necessarily 
mean there is consensus on the specification's contents.
