Notifications WG update

From: Jon Lee <jonlee@apple.com>

To: "public-web-notification@w3.org WG" <public-web-notification@w3.org>

Hello everyone,

A quick introduction and update:

I'm Jon Lee, an engineer at Apple. I have been responsible for bringing WebKit's notification implementation in line with the spec, and provided technical feedback on the spec which helped it reach its current form. As the new chair, I look forward to helping the Notifications WG get to REC status.

Before we can get to Last Call, the first thing we should do is make sure that our spec is synced with the latest WHATWG spec. I asked Ted O'Connor to take a look at the diffs, and aside from pulling in some minor wording, affiliation updates, and new acknowledgments, there are only two notable changes:

1) Like the WHATWG spec, we won't explicitly say to convert strings to Unicode since browsers already do this. [1][2]

2) Unlike the WHATWG spec, I do not think we should make the callback parameter optional. Discussion of this issue can be found in [3], and I invite continuing that discussion here if anyone has concerns.

Once these changes have been pulled in, I will announce our transition to LC.

Regards,
Jon
