>> Dear WebRTC and Device APIs Working Groups,
>> As discussed during our joint and respective meetings, here is a draft
>proposal for a TF charter on media capture. As indicated, it is only a
>draft and is very much open to feedback, concerns, etc.
>> As per process, a TF charter is a rather informal document that only
>needs to document the TF's existence. It can just live in an email that is
>linked to from our groups' pages - so we don't need to do anything

>> The Media Capture Task Force is a joint task force of the Web Real-Time
>Communications and Device APIs WGs that aims to produce APIs to capture
>media from cameras and microphones in a manner that is both simple for
>local-only use cases and amenable to real-time streaming. This work will be
>produced by iterating over the existing "getUserMedia()" API.
>> The mailing list on which the TF's discussions take is public-media-
>capture@w3.org. The chairs are Stefan Håkansson and Harald Alvestrand.
>Since any participant in either group can join the TF, decisions are made
>by consensus inside of the task force and do not require separate
>ratification by the wider groups.
>> Operational modalities such as whether or not to have phone and/or face
>to face meetings, as well as where to store the draft document are left to
>the TF to decide by consensus.
>> Given that this deliverable is covered by both groups' charters, the
>resulting specification will be covered by the union of RF commitments for
>both groups.
