Subject: Third Last Call of Guidelines for Web Content Transformation  
Proxies published
Date: Thu, 11 Feb 2010 23:29:39 +0100

Hello TAG, HTML WG, XHTML2 WG, WebApps WG, HCG, Web Security Context WG

This is a transition announcement for the third Last Call Working Draft
of the Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies, published
today at:


This set of guidelines for Web Content Transformation proxies (i.e. non
transparent HTTP proxies) was developed by the W3C Mobile Web Best
Practices Working Group to address some of the needs identified in
particular on mobile networks, in accordance with the working group's
charter [1].

A second Last Call working draft was published a few months ago, and you
had been invited to review the specification back then. The Working
Group received a few comments that triggered substantive changes in the
document. The group addressed the comments and decided to publish a
third Last Call [2]. Status ref. patent policy is available at [3].

This new Last Call review period extends until 11 March 2010.

Although the sections mentioned below have not changed since the
previous publication, we would be grateful if your group could review
the document once more. in particular:
    * for the TAG, since the document still relates to its issue
genericResources-53 and its accompanying finding:
    * for the HTML and XHTML2 Working Groups, since the document makes use
of the (X)HTML link element to give hints on content transformation
proxies (no change in this version though)
    * for the WebApps Working Group, since the document applies to proxies
that may receive requests initiated by XmlHTTPRequest objects.
    * for the HyperText CG, as the official point of liaison with the Open
Mobile Alliance which might want to submit a review on the document
given its implications on the mobile ecosystem.
    * for the Web Security Context WG, for the section on HTTPS link
rewriting (no change in this version though)

(The Working Group is also requesting a review from the IETF HTTPBis
Working Group).

If your group wants to submit a review but is unable to provide it in
that timeframe, please let us know so that we can determine a possible
extension of the review period.

The working group has just sent official replies to the commenters of
the second Last Call. At this point of time, there are no formal

Francois Daoust,
Staff Contact of the Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group
