Hi Arthur,

The WebDriver spec is formalising the APIs and workings of the
existing webdriver implementations[1][2][3]. That means that the
implementations are actually further along than the specification
would make them appear.

We have two mobile implementations right now: one for Android and one
for iOS. Both of these have some level of support for touch events,
either through the main "WebElement" API[4] or through the Advanced
User Interactions API, the entry point to which is the Actions[5] and
TouchActions[6] classes in Java. The test suite for the webdriver spec
will be in Python, so we should be surfacing these APIs there.

I'd be happy to focus on the parts of the spec that you feel would be
most advantageous to your group, so please feel free to ask us to
flesh out any sections that you feel are missing. If it would help,
I'll be at TPAC from Monday to Wednesday and would be happy to chat at
any point (and you'd also be welcome to attend the browser test tools
sessions on Monday and/or Tuesday)

Regards,

Simon
