Hi All,
On behalf of the Web Manifest spec editors, this is a call for
consensus to split out the `ImageResource` dictionary and associated
fetching behavior [1] from WebApp Manifest into its own specification.
Aaron Gustafson, Microsoft, together with Rayan Kanso and Matt Giuca,
Google, have kindly volunteered to be Editors.

The rationale for the split is that there are a number of specs that
would like to use this `ImageResource` dictionary in APIs (see [2] for
more rationale). Splitting it from Web manifest allows it to be used
as a general way of describing an image in for JS APIs without needing
to rely on the Web Manifest spec. Additionally, the Web Manifest spec
doesn't itself use the dictionary in a JS API, so it makes even more
sense to just split it out.

If you would like to formally object to the decision, please reply to
this email and let us know by Friday the 25th EOD with a rationale for
the objection. Out of respect for everyone already overflowing inbox,
I kindly ask that you please refrain from replying with "+1" (silence
is considered support!).

If you'd like to participate, we invite you to subscribe to the
"image-resource" repository [2].

Kind regards,
Marcos
