Subject: New CSS Working Group Chairs: Rossen Atanassov, Alan Stearns


Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Chairs,

We would like to thank Daniel Glazman and Peter Linss for their service as co-chairs of the CSS Working Group. After seven years [1], they have decided to step down from the co-chair role.
They will continue to contribute their invaluable technical and implementation expertise as Working Group members.

Daniel and Peter were appointed at a critical time for CSS, when CSS
2.1 was solidifying as the key interoperable core of CSS. They ably led the group through the next challenge of ensuring that the huge array of CSS modules each retained forwards momentum.

In addition to co-chairing, the CSS test suite reporting framework and Shepherd [2] test suite management tool, written by Peter, were strong contributory factors to the success of the CSS Working Group at this time.

We are pleased to announce the new co-chairs of the Group, whose names will be familiar to anyone who follows the development of CSS:

   Rossen Atanassov (Microsoft)
   Alan Stearns (Adobe)

The handover from outgoing to incoming co-chairs will take place at the start of TPAC 2015. Bert Bos and Chris Lilley remain Staff contacts.

This announcement follows section 6.1 of the W3C Process [3]
