To the Group:

          When we first discussed the current Editor’s Draft (formerly known as "June Draft"), Jonathan was rightly concerned about the implications of that choice for our schedule:  In Sunnyvale, we had agreed to work against a July 31 deadline.

          It is now time to take stock of the hard work that the group has done since:  We have 23 specific change proposals against the Editor’s Draft, and a set of issues against the “Compliance June” product:
          http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/track/products/5
          http://www.w3.org/wiki/Privacy/TPWG

          Further, we have, using the call for objections process, recorded a Working Group decision (closing ISSUE-215) to continue with the Editor’s draft as a baseline text, as opposed to the change proposal offered by the DAA and other advertising groups (as amended):
          http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/2013-july-decision/
          http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/2013-july-explanatory-memo/

          We believe that, together, the decision on ISSUE-215, the issues list, and the list of change proposals give us a clear (and well-defined) work program toward Last Call, and a decision on the direction going forward.   As a group, we will review the individual change proposals, look for counterproposals and perfecting amendments, and either agree on a single approach, or use the call for objections process to move forward.

          In terms of near-term plans, a personal note from Peter: With the packers at my house now, and my upcoming marriage, I will not participate in any calls the rest of July and August. Matthias has graciously agreed to chair the call on 24 July on both his and my behalf.  W3C staff and Matthias will work hard on detailed project planning based on the issues list and change proposals over the first half of August.  That planning can form the basis for resuming issue-by-issue work on the compliance specification after the summer break.

          We look forward to your input on this approach and further discussion on the call this Wednesday.
