To publish the WebCGM 2.1 as a First and LC working Draft we must do the 
following (see transition steps [1]):

0- Negotiation of Review Schedule
* The Chair negotiates the Last Call review schedule with the Chairs of 
groups with dependencies (on chairs@w3.org). Securing review commitments 
before going to Last Call will help ensure that your document receives 
wide review. The suggested way to negotiate a last call review schedule 
is to send a heads-up to the Chairs of groups with dependencies, cc'ing 
chairs@w3.org. Several weeks prior to the estimated Last Call start 
date, the Working Group should negotiate schedules with groups where 
there are dependencies.

1- Transition request (for first WD)
* The Chair sends a transition request to the Interaction Domain Lead 
plh@w3.org, cc'ing w3t-comm@w3.org and chairs@w3.org.

* The Domain Lead approve the transition request.

2- Publication request (for first WD)

* The Document Contact prepares the document in accordance with pubrules 
and develops a proposed publication schedule. The title page date is 
chosen based on the anticipated publication schedule. Note: Director 
approval is required for some namespace URIs; see URIs for W3C 
Namespaces for details.

* Before sending the publication request, the Document Contact SHOULD 
install the document in its final location. The Document Contact MAY 
request publication of a document that is not yet installed at its final 
location, but in this case MUST provide installation instructions to the 

* To ensure that Webmaster and Communications Team resources are 
available for publication, at least five days prior to the anticipated 
publication date the Document Contact sends a publication request to the 
Webmaster at webreq@w3.org, optionally cc'ing w3c-archive@w3.org (which 
has a Member-visible archive).

3- Publication and Transition Announcement

* The Webmaster completes publication and notifies the Chair and Team 
Contact of publication, cc'ing webreq@w3.org and w3t-comm@w3.org.
* In order to facilitate peer review, once the document has been 
published, the Chair sends a transition announcement to chairs@w3.org 
and the group's public mailing list.
