Hi All,

First, congratulations to the group on today's publication of the 
Proposed Recommendation of the Touch Events v1 spec 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/PR-touch-events-20130509/>. This is a real 
nice milestone to make!

Regarding the next steps for this group ...

* Touch Events v1 - the next step to get v1 to Recommendation is to wait 
until the Web IDL reference is a Proposed Recommendation or to write 
webidlharness tests that prove two or more implementations implement all 
of the spec's IDL. I'm not entirely sure what this latter approach means 
in practice so perhaps Doug can clarify the minimal amount of 
webidlharness testing that is required.

* Touch Events v2 - in October 2012 we agreed to publish TE v2 as a WG 
Note to signal that work on this spec has stopped 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webevents/2012OctDec/0009.html>. 
So unless I hear otherwise, I assume this is still the Plan of Record. 
Before we proceed with that WG Not publication, can someone please 
compare v1 and v2 and make a proposal regarding what (if any) changes in 
v1 we want to merge to the the v2 spec?

* Touch Events to Pointer Events mapping - our Plan of Record includes 
creating some type of Touch Events to/from Pointer Events mapping 
document (see <https://www.w3.org/2010/webevents/track/actions/101>). I 
presume we still want to do this and as Rick indicated in 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webevents/2013JanMar/0059.html>, 
that doc needs to block on implementation and deployment data, in 
particular having a single UA that implements both specs. Presumably, we 
should have sufficient data to write that doc by August.

Comments regarding the above are welcome, as are any other Big Ticket 
Items we still need to address.

-Thanks, Art
