Message-ID: <5016CCA3.4030301@nokia.com>
To: public-webapps <public-webapps@w3.org>
This is a Call for Consensus to publish a LCWD of WebSocket API using 
the following document as the basis for the LC 
<http://dev.w3.org/html5/websockets/publish/LC-websockets-Aug-2012.html>.

Note that besides the ArrayBuffer patch ([r1.272] which fixes bug 17263 
as discussed in [1]), to reduce fragmentation with the latest ED, the 
Draft LC also includes [r1.271] (adds a Warning) and [r1.273] 
(editorial). The Draft LC also includes the bug fixes noted in the July 
18 CfC to publish a CR of this spec [2].

[Bugz] shows five open bugs: 12510, 15209, 15210, 15829 and 17264 and 
the Draft LC includes fixes for 12510 (Julian's patch) and 15829.

This CfC satisfies the group's requirement to "record the group's 
decision to request advancement" for this LCWD. Note the Process 
Document states the following regarding the significance/meaning of a LCWD:

[[
http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html#last-call

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.
]]

The proposed LC review period is 3 weeks.

If you have any comments or concerns about this CfC, please send them to 
public-webapps@w3.org by August 6 at the latest. Positive response is 
preferred and encouraged and silence will be considered as agreement 
with the proposal.

-Thanks, AB
