September 24 P3P Specification

From: Lorrie Cranor <lorrie@research.att.com>

The P3P Specification Working Group has issued
a new Last Call Working Draft at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-P3P-20010924/
and of course also http://www.w3.org/TR/P3P/

This is a revision of the 15 December 2000 Candidate
Recommendation Draft. Due to substantive changes based on
feedback from implementers, the Working Group has agreed
to return this draft to Last Call to invite comments and input from
W3C Members and the community at large. A change log with
a summary of the modifications occurred from the 15 December
2000 Candidate Recommendation is included at the end of this
document for convenience. Because these changes are based
on solid implementation experience, the P3P Specification
Group maintains all the Candidate Recommendation
milestones and expects to request Proposed Recommendation
after all those milestones and comments from this Last Call are
properly addressed.

The last call review period ends 15 October 2001. Please
send review comments before the review period ends to
www-p3p-public-comments@w3.org (publicly archived).


Please note that we have previously announced these
changes to the P3P public developer mailing lists. Now
they are all folded into the specification itself.
Web sites should update their P3P policies and policy
reference files  to conform to the new specification. In 
most cases the changes will be very minor. We expect 
that new versions of some of the P3P policy editors will be 
available very soon that will produce the new format. You 
should be able to load in your old policy and produce a new 
one automatically. Most P3P user agent developers have
reported that their user agents will be able to read both
the old and new formats right now. However, we expect
new releases of user agents may not support the old format.
