>    ... my suggestion for today was to look at how a task force

>
>    Marcos: the idea behind a task force is pretty straightforward
>    ... a given task force looks at a given problem that has been

>    ... you first want to specify what the problem is
>    ... what are existing solutions out there?
>    ... who use these solutions, with data gathering
>    ... you'll also want to find passionate people

>    ... then we've circulated ideas on twitter, IRC, etc
>    ... and from there, it snowballed a bit, with a dedicated IRC
>    channel, where new ideas are brought up every day
>    ... the key thing is to find people interested with someone in
>    charge
>
>    schuki: the general idea is that this is about defining the
>    issue, finding a leader, finding interested individuals and
>    start building the work
>    ... Marcos has been particularly successful in his own task
>    force

> Going through task forces
>
>    Schuki: at the top of the page, there is a table with the list
>    of deliverables
>    ... (would like to make it as pretty as the GLD group but have
>    failed so far)
>    ... for each deliverable, the table gives information on status
>    and where to find more info
>    ... right now, the only one with full information is Marcos'
>
> the task forces
>
>    Schuki: the first TF is particularly relevant in light of our
>    discussions at TPAC
>    ... The documentation Task force aims to look at the various
>    documents we already have (coremob report, webapp state)
>    ... there is a lot of duplication and manual work
>    ... we would like to automate data gathering as possible
>    ... and pull it in a kind of dashboard
>    ... rather than having a static document
>    ... This would help reduce people's time in building these
>    views
>    ... and would also make it easier for people to find what
>    they're interested in

>    Schuki: I expect that task force will have one of the
>    co-chairs, as well as Dom
>    ... This task force will have "sub-task force"
>    ... focusing on "closing the gap" and the "api gap"
>    ... work on the document in this space needs to continue in
>    parallel to the data gathering/automation
>    ... we'll probably want to involve some of the hybrid guys
>    (e.G. phonegap)
>    ... the other sub-task force is on "web app state"
>    ... linked to Dom's quarterly document on state of specs and
>    implementations in mobile Web
>    ... Dom has started to migrate that work into JSON-based data
>    ... but beyond the data stuff, there will still be work in
>    tracking status of spec and implementations
>    ... the goal will be to migrate this to dashboard style over
>    time
>    ... One thing we haven't quite specified as a sub task force
>    yet, would be the work on use cases / goals
>    ... if we do create a task force, I'll let the list know
>    ... the next task force is offline
>    ... I'll be leading that one
>    ... we'll do work in testing and demos on top of ServiceWorker
>    ... since serviceworker is set to be the solution in this space
>    ... we can help with testing that solution
>    ... next task force is around scrolling
>
>    <stakagi> interesting!
>
>    Schuki: scrolling is an often raised issue
>    ... but on which we lack detailed information
>    ... we need to understand the origins of "janking" and how to
>    improve the situation
>
>    <stakagi> I think that this is the issue which should be solved
>    also not only to webApps but for declarative contents.
>
>    Schuki: I expect this will be very similar work to what has
>    been done on installable webapps
>    ... next task force is on installable web apps
>    ... I've linked to some of the existing info
>    ... Please check out the work that has been done there
>    ... next task force is on payments
>    ... there is a Web Payments CG that is expected to do lot of
>    the related work
>    ... they've asked us to build use cases and requirements with a
>    mobile focus
>    ... a lot of it will be around UI considerations
>    ... some of it will relate to operators billings, mobile wallet
>    ... The next one is on Permissions
>    ... That one is expected to be pretty important
>    ... Dom has offered to bring this up with the TAG
>    ... this problem affects a number of groups, and beyond mobile
>    ... after that, we'll want to build recommendations on how to
>    move forward, what model permissions should use
>    ... start pay attention to differences
>    ... we have put a list of names of people that would be key to
>    involve in this
>    ... final task force is targeted at "dev tools and diagnostic"
>    ... another important one
>    ... but on which we also have too little data and info
>    ... we really need to find people that can help us get started

>    Schuki: Each task force has a section for a leader, a list of

>    ... marcos and I can't lead all of these

>    ... I'm monitoring the related repo and have been flooded with

>    ... Marcos, any lessons from that success?
>
>    Marcos: as I've pointed out, the key is really to find people
>    interested in the problem
>    ... the data we had gathered also proved to be timely useful
>
>    <anssik> ppl interested in this topic should join #manifest
>
>    Marcos: you need to ask questions, and research what needs to
>    be understood
>    ... we can also help find people that can help or who can help
>    find people that can help
>    ... e.g. for scrolling
>
>    Schuki: any random Paul @ Google is probably a good target
>    ... if you need to find contacts, please let marcos and I know

> Some cool news from the week
