[widgets] CfC to remove openURL from Widget object; deadline August 25

From: Arthur Barstow <art.barstow@nokia.com>
Date: Fri, 13 Aug 2010 09:15:40 -0400
Message-ID: <4C65457C.9090306@nokia.com>
To: public-webapps <public-webapps@w3.org>
This is a Call for Consensus to remove the openURL method from the 
Widget object as captured in Issue-116 and Action-568 and discussed on 
the mail list ([1], [2], [3]) and during several calls (most recently 
[4], [5]):

* Issue-116 "Need to flesh out the security considerations for the 
openURL method in the Widget Interface spec"
http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/track/issues/116

* Action-568
http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/track/actions/568

If this proposal is agreed, the Widget Interface spec will be 
republished as a new Last Call Working Draft. (It may be possible to 
skip publishing a new Candidate and proceed directly to Proposed 
Recommendation [6] but that process issue can be discussed separately).

The deadline for responses is August 25.

As with all of our CfCs, positive response is preferred and encouraged 
and silence will be assumed to be assent.

-Art Barstow
