Responses to this call are due by Close of Business on 16 February 2014 (two weeks). Please send a reply to this message (I agree, I disagree, I abstain) to register your opinion. The CG rules do NOT assume that a lack of reply is agreement with the proposal. (See

If you wish to discuss the proposed change, please create a new thread for that discussion (so that "votes" are easily separated from "discussion").


The current (Process 2014) text for section 8.1.1 is

8.1.1 Start of a Review Period

Each Advisory Committee review period begins with a Call for Review from the Team to the Advisory Committee. The review form describes the proposal, raises attention to deadlines, estimates when the decision will be available, and includes other practical information. Each Member organization MAY send one review, which MUST be returned by its Advisory Committee representative.

The Team MUST provide two channels for Advisory Committee review comments:

  1.  an archived Team-only<http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#Team-only> channel; this is the default channel for reviews.
  2.  an archived Member-only<http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#Member-only> channel.

Reviewers MAY send information to either or both channels. They MAY also share their reviews with other Members on the Advisory Committee discussion list<http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#ACCommunication>.

The proposed Resolution is:
On list item "1." above, eliminate, "this is the default channel for reviews."

Add a paragraph following list item "2." above, with the sentence, "The Call for Review MUST specify which channel is the default for review comments on that Call."

Rationale: Given there are two possible channels for review comments,  a reviewer needs to know where his comments will be going by default.  However, it is not necessary to specify this in the Process and it suffices that the Call itself identify the default channel.
