Hi,

Here are some info from the W3C process [1] and the "Organize a 
Technical Report Transition (2015 Process)" [2] and Echidna [3].



W3C process [1] does not require a record the group's decision) for 
publication of a new version of a WD.

[.. To publish a revision of a Working draft, a Working Group must 
record the group's decision to request publication. Consensus is not 
required, as this is a procedural step,]...

It also says
[.. Working Drafts do not necessarily represent a consensus of the 
Working Group, and do not imply any endorsement by W3C or its members 
beyond agreement to work on a general area of technology]...



Now looking at the "Organize a Technical Report Transition (2015 
Process)" [2] it says for publication of an ordinary working draft:

[... Here are the W3C Process Document transition requirements for a 
Working Draft:  The Group must record the group's decision to request 
publication ...]


Last Echidna [3] says
[... Group decision
Every publication needs to point to the Working Group decision to 
publish, per the 2015 Process: "must record the group's decision to 
request publication. Consensus is not required, as this is a procedural 
step".]

Hope this helps.


Thierry
