Hi All,

The Web IDL spec is a normative dependency for many specs from several 
Working Groups. As such, its progression along the Recommendation track 
is very important and Cameron has agreed to the following schedule to 
publish a Last Call Working Draft by June 30:

* June 20 - start a 1-week Call for Consensus (CfC) to publish a LCWD

* June 28 - assuming no major objections are raised during the CfC, 
request publication of the LC

* June 30 - LCWD is published

For those unfamiliar with W3C process, please note Note the Process 
Document states the following regarding the
significance/meaning of a LCWD:

[[

Purpose: A Working Group's Last Call announcement is a signal that:

* the Working Group believes that it has satisfied its relevant 
technical requirements (e.g., of the charter or requirements document) 
in the Working Draft;

* the Working Group believes that it has satisfied significant 
dependencies with other groups;

* other groups SHOULD review the document to confirm that these 
dependencies have been satisfied. In general, a Last Call announcement 
is also a signal that the Working Group is planning to advance the 
technical report to later maturity levels.

Thanks Cameron for leading this important spec and agreeing to the schedule!
