Results of the Call for Review
------------------------------

We called for review on 10 October 2016:
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-ac-members/2016OctDec/0008.html

Thanks to the 27 Members who provided input:
https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/33280/autowg-2016/results

The following comments were received during the review period:

* Concern about the security and privacy aspects of the work
* Increasing involvement from additional Auto Manufacturers

Regarding the security and privacy concerns, the work does not expose 
parts of the vehicle on the Web and the Group is still exploring the 
security aspects of exposing vehicle signal information to clients. The 
Group has a Privacy and Security Task Force and is liaising with Web 
Application Security Working Group, Web Security Interest Group, Privacy 
Interest Group and Genivi Security Expert Group.

Volkswagen has recently joined the Working Group and we are in 
communication with other Auto Manufacturers.

This announcement follows section 7.1.2 of the W3C Process Document:

and the Call for Participation follows section 5.2.4 of the W3C Process 
Document:

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director,
