Incidentally, there is an ongoing call for review to move the 
Presentation API, currently developed within the Second Screen 
Presentation Community Group, to the Recommendation track in a dedicated 
Working Group [1].

Whether you think this high-level and more focused approach is a good 
thing or not, now would be a good time to share your thoughts in 
response to this call [2] (member-only link) if not done already. The 
call for review closes this Friday (12 September). Only Advisory 
Committee Representatives can fill the form, so get in touch with yours 
as needed!

Thanks,
Francois.
