Hi All,

As anticipated, the Devices and Sensors Working Group Revised Charter was approved 29 June 2018:


The official announcement (Member-only link):


I'm thrilled to announce Reilly Grant of Google is now officially joining me as the DAS WG co-chair. As many of you know, Reilly has been working on the Chromium project in the area related to this group's work. Reilly also brings extensive experience in editing web specifications for features that interact with devices and hardware to the group.

I look forward to chairing the DAS WG with Reilly. Welcome!

The Revised Charter also adds two new specifications to this group, namely:

* Geolocation Sensor
* DeviceOrientation Event

The transfer of these specs' repos to this group is in progress. Meanwhile, please get in touch with the chairs if you're interested in helping with either of these specifications as a contributor or as an editor.

And finally, an admin thing related to the Revised Charter you need to pay attention to:
