Hi folks,

There is a new 14 August editor's draft of the Process, as the first step  
in developing "Process2015".

As always it's at https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/AB/raw-file/default/cover.html  
and the Mercurial changelog is https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/AB/

As with the current (1 August) Process, it is a single-page document.

The first change in this draft is to remove Activities - like Domains  
(which have never been mentioned in the Process) these are an internal  
management device, and the Advisory Board resolved a number of times since  
2006 to remove them from "the next version of the Process".

There are still a bit of text left in chapter 5, for things that would  
obvioously change the normative requirements if they were simply deleted.  
E.g., charters don't require any review to be extended, but Activities  
did. I'd like to have explicit resolutions for what we do with these  
dangling bits.

I also simplified the acknowledgements section.

The old chapters are still in the repository. So far only acks.html,  
activities.html and to a lesser extent groups.html are noticeably  
different from the content of the single-page version, but I expect more  
divergence as we do more work. So at some point soon I'll update them to  
point to the single-page version.

Note that I have tried to make sure we haven't lost any #fragmentID since  
the 2005 Process (although the ones related to activities now point to  
things in the changelog).

There are various other changes I would like to make (largely removing  
things), but I'll write proposals based on specific issues. And there are  
outstanding issues where people wanted to add brand-new requirements. Let  
the games begin…
