Hi David and Ted,

The W3C's Web Events WG has been discussing adding a Joystick API to its 
charter. To date, all of the WG members, including Matt and Olli, have 
voiced support for this charter change (see below).

David - do you see any issues with adding this API to WebEvents' charter 
[1]?

Ted - today we talked about this API during our weekly call [2]. Matt 
and Olli mentioned you may be interested in joining the WG and helping 
with this API. As such, please feel free to join us during our Sept 20 
call @ 11:00 Boston time, where this API will be an agenda topic.

-Regards, Art

Hi All,

Mozilla [1] and Google [2] have draft specs for a Joystick API and
members of both organizations have expressed interest in adding this API
to the Web Events WG. During our August 30 call, we discussed adding
this spec to our charter [3] and support for doing so was unanimous
although many WG members were not on the call.

Before the group can formally publish this API, the spec must be added
to the WG's charter [4]. Given updating a charter is relatively
heavy-weight, I don't want to pursue that route if members of the group
have concerns about adding this API to our charter.

By September 9, please indicate whether or not you support adding this
API to the charter. If you do not support adding this API, please
elaborate on your concerns.

For those WG members that represent W3C members, you may want to forward
this email to your AC rep.

-Art Barstow
