Given our 1-week CfC for new publications, weekends, etc., Oct 15 is the last day to start a CfC to publish a document before TPAC. However, a lot of groups publish documents at this time so starting the CfC earlier is highly recommended.

Firefox 14 and Chrome 22 shipped Pointer Lock implementations to
stable channel users recently. (Check out this Mozilla demo
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/demos/detail/bananabread, using
either.)

Pointer Lock specification did have minor adjustments (inter-document
and iframe sandbox security issues, pending state and mouse movement
clarifications). diffs:

So, I'm happy to prepare an updated working draft.
