WG Decision: Transition of HTML5 to Candidate Recommendation

Since we did not receive any technical objections to this CfC, this CfC passes and HTML5 will now transition to Candidate Recommendation status.  

The Chairs will request a meeting with the W3C Director to get this transition approved and will move to publication ASAP.

Subject: CfC: Request transition of HTML5 to Candidate Recommendation

In accordance with both the W3C process's requirement to record the group's decision to request advancement [1], and with the steps identified in the "Plan 2014" CfC [2], this is a Call for Consensus
(CfC) to request transition to CR for the following document:


For reference, here is a list of bugs addressed during the previous LC for this document:


Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged. If there are no objections by Wednesday July 23rd, this resolution will carry.

Considerations to note:

- A request to advance indicates that the Working Group believes the specification is stable and appropriate for implementation.

- The specification MAY still change based on implementation experience.
