Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

The charter of this Working Group includes new deliverables that
require W3C Patent Policy licensing commitments from all Participants.
Consequently, all Participants must join or re-join the group, which
involves agreeing to participate under the terms of the revised
charter and the W3C Patent Policy. Current Participants may continue
to attend meetings (teleconferences and face-to-face meetings) for 45
days after this announcement, even if they have not yet re-joined the
group. After 45 days, ongoing participation (including meeting
attendance and voting) is only permitted for those who have re-joined
the group.

For more information, please refer to this related email:

Thank you,

 - Ian Jacobs
   Head of W3C Communications
