Dear all,

The minutes of our meeting on 2012-11-21 are now available online:

Many thanks to Matt for his heroic (first time) scribing.

We looked at 4 topics:

1) Testing

We are continuing the conversation about testing, as we expect the testing work to start in earnest soon. We looked a little at  http://w3c-test.org/ and Chris Lilley mentioned systems there  both for test submission and management of test results.

Our approach for testing will likely be a mix of automated and human testing. Some tests will check the presence of a feature, others will have side by side testing - which may be done via a reference output or comparison with already tested results.

Next steps: more discussion and presentations from experts at our next teleconference. In the meantime, Google (and Mozilla) will start thinking about which of their tests will be submitted.

2) Face-to-face meeting

Answer the poll if you haven't yet. The results so far point towards March, knowing we'll want to work around (or embrace) SXSW. https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/46884/f2f-2013-1/

3) Document Milestones

We quickly reviewed the initial (according to charter) and current estimates for our milestones. As far as our plan for Last Call is concerned, we are thinking that a Q1 2013 date for the LC of the web audio API may be ambitious, but we are still hopeful. For the Web Midi API, we should be on track for a Last CAll in Q1 2013. Updates here, editors are encouraged to check and think about the milestones versus progress on a regular basis. http://www.w3.org/2011/audio/wiki/W3C_Audio_Publications_and_Milestones

4) Mozilla (and other) implementations of web audio api

We had a quick chat about the state of the mozilla implementation (still early, starting with the DOM bits before tackling the actual audio output part). There was a very interesting discussion about how we'd need to change the spec (more details, glossary, reference to literature etc) so that an implementor with no expertise in audio can implement the web audio api.

Next meeting: 5th December, noon Boston.
