Ive prepared the following LC proposal to ease the review.

Battery Status API W3C Last Call Working Draft 28 August 2014:


Please review the proposal. Ill create a LC2.html snapshot when the group is happy with it. Passes pub rules and link checker.

> In May 2012 we published a Candidate Recommendation  of the Battery API [1] and received implementer feedback, moving us to an asynchronous promises-based solution, as in the current Editors Draft [2]. Subsequently weve carefully reviewed and received feedback on this draft, creating new issues [3] which we have resolved with updates to the editors draft [4].

Further clarified the second bullet to say: "Clarify default values when a BatteryManager object is created and the implementation is unable to report the battery status information.

Set "processVersion: 2005 for this spec as well.

> Please indicate support or concern regarding this CfC by replying to this message by 21 August  - silence will be considered agreement (explicit agreement, even just a +1 preferred). Earlier responses would be helpful.
