The HTML WG Chairs said that, "as W3C proceeds with its work on
follow-ons to HTML5, W3C and the WHATWG plan to continue their
partnership in developing the right features for the future web."[1]

With the open membership, straightforward process, and clear IPR policy
provided by Community Groups, we believe this partnership will work best
if the WHATWG becomes a W3C Community Group as proposed by Ian Hickson
today.[2] Thus, we welcome and support the formation of the Web
Hypertext Application Technology Community Group, reunifying development
of the open Web platform under the stewardship of the W3C.

We hope those who have felt, for whatever reason, unable to participate
in the WHATWG will embrace this new Community Group. Only by working
together can we truly lead the Web to its full potential.
