During the October 31 meeting [1], there was agreement to publish a 
Candidate Recommendation of the WebSockets API and this is a Call for 
Consensus to do so:

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/websockets/

The remaining open editorial bug [13700] will be fixed before publication.

I propose the CR exit criteria is the same as our last CR (Progress Events):

[[
To exit the Candidate Recommendation (CR) stage the following criteria 
must have been met:

1. There will be at least two interoperable implementations passing all 
test cases in the test suite for this specification. An implementation 
is to be available (i.e. for download), shipping (i.e. not private), and 
not experimental (i.e. intended for a wide audience). The working group 
will decide when the test suite is of sufficient quality to test 
interoperability and will produce an implementation report (hosted 
together with the test suite).

2. A minimum of three months of the CR stage will have elapsed (i.e. not 
until after DD MMM 2012). This is to ensure that enough time is given 
for any remaining major errors to be caught. The CR period will be 
extended if implementations are slow to appear.
]]

This CfC satisfies: a) the group's requirement to "record the group's 
decision to request advancement" to CR; and b) "General Requirements for 
Advancement on the Recommendation Track" as defined in the Process Document:

   http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html#transition-reqs

As with all of our CfCs, positive response is preferred and encouraged 
and silence will be considered as agreeing with the proposal. The 
deadline for comments is November 9 and all comments should be sent to 
public-webapps at w3.org.
