Lofton,

1- WebCGM been a first W3C WD, I need to request to the Director a short
name (publication name) for the Latest version link:

I propose "webcgm20" as short name (if this is OK with you)
     http://www.w3.org/TR/webcgm20/

The cover page is almost done (need final URI and LC review ending date).


--> Once you have done the final edits on the document.

2- you should sent a mail to chairs@w3.org to announce the upcoming LC
review schedule and copy the Chairs of groups with dependencies. (send a
heads-up to the Chairs of groups with dependencies, cc'ing chairs@w3.org).
A 5 week LC review would be desirable (minimum been 4 weeks)

3- I will agin to verify that the document fulfills the Publication rules,
validates correctly XHTML, CSS, no Broken links, etc.)

4- Then During a telecon we MUST Record the decision that the Group is
OK for moving the draft to Last Call.

5- You need to send a Transition Request to the Director/CEO:
timbl@w3.org, steve@w3.org, cc'ing w3t-comm@w3.org and chairs@w3.org.

Once the Director has approved the transition request.(There should not
be any Transition meeting needed for moving to LC (It is strait forward).

6- I proposed a publication schedule to the Comm team (at least five
days before the publication date mentioned on the spec.

7- I edit the final publication date in the spec and I install the
document in its final location (TR space)

8- I send a Publication Request to the Webmaster at webreq@w3.org,
cc'ing the Domain Leader (Chris).

9- the Webmaster publishes the spec and notifies the Chair and Team
Contact of publication.

10- Once the spec is published, you send a transition announcement to
chairs@w3.org and the webCGM public mailing list.

end of story.

You may have more details here

My experience is that for this LC step, once you are done with the final
edits on the document, it should take about 10 to 15 days to Request
Transition, Publication request and final publication announcement.

If you have any questions let me know.
