Since we did not receive any objections to this CfC, this CfC passes.   

The Chairs and Team will now issue the W3C internal transition request and will schedule a meeting with the W3C Director to request his approval for this transition.

Subject: CfC: Request transition of Canvas2D to Proposed Recommendation

In accordance with the W3C process's requirement to record the group's decision to request advancement [1], this is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to request transition to Proposed Recommendation for the following document:
https://w3c.github.io/2dcontext/PR-20150907.html 

For your reference a Diff with the Candidate Recommendation [2] is available:
http://services.w3.org/htmldiff?doc1=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2FTR%2F2dcontext%2F&doc2=https%3A%2F%2Fw3c.github.io%2F2dcontext%2FPR-20150907.html
- The only substantive change is the origin check for fillText and strokeText to match implementations for https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=28987.  
- The additional section 7 is purely editorial. It regroups several definitions that were dispersed in the spec.
- The new type CanvasImageSource is also purely editorial and no impact on implementations.  Other changes are also editorial.

There were 31 bugs filed during the Candidate Recommendation stage:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/buglist.cgi?bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&bug_status=RESOLVED&bug_status=VERIFIED&bug_status=CLOSED&component=CR%20HTML%20Canvas%202D%20Context&list_id=57536&product=HTML%20WG&query_format=advanced
All the bugs were resolved except for bugs 21944 and28651 which are not considered critical.

Tests for this specification can be found at [3-4].  An updated analysis of the test results is available at [5-6].  The failure rate is at 1.52% (14 failures out of 728). None of the failures are considered critical.  A companion report for drawFocusIfNeeded and addHitRegion is available at [7].  The failures reported there have been reported as bugs in implementations.

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged. If there are no objections by Wednesday Sep 16th, this resolution will carry.

Considerations to note:
- A request to advance indicates that the Working Group believes the specification is stable and appropriate for advancement to Recommendation status.
