The comment period for the October 25 LCWD of Web Storage [LC] ended 
November 15. No bugs were submitted since the LC was published. Two 
comments were submitted and they are tracked in:

  [1] http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/wiki/WebStorage-Comments-LC-25Oct2011

I propose: a) the comments in [1] be addressed via updates to the 
[Database] wiki and/or new bugs reports for extensions to the spec; and 
b) we proceed to Candidate Recommendation (CR) using [LC] as the basis 
(the ED has not changed since October 4).

As such, this is a Call for Consensus to publish a CR of Web Storage and 
I propose the CR's exit criteria is the same as our last proposed CR 
(Web Sockets):

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

1. There will be at least two interoperable implementations passing all 
approved 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 @@ February/March 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 25 and all comments should be sent to 
public-webapps at w3.org.
