With the closure of the Constraints topic, we believe that the last 
major item on this document is closed, and that the rest of the stuff we 
need to do consists of finding and fixing the remaining smaller issues.

As of this writing, there are 14 open bugs. There will be more.

The chairs are suggesting the following timeline:

- Yesterday, May 7: New version of the spec, with the conclusion of the 
Constraints discussion, published.
- From that publication to Sunday, May 18: WG review. Open season for 
bug filing; everyone's encouraged to file bugs on the "Media Capture and 
Streams" component in Bugzilla.
- Monday, May 19: Face to face time - we spend time discussing stuff 
that is beyond the nits stage. The chairs pick bugs to address.

At this time, we close the buganizer for input, saying that items should 
instead be raised on the mailing list if necessary, with the chairs 
filing bugs when needed, and work on burning down the buglist.

- When the bug list is empty of bugs filed before May 18, and the 
resulting document is published, we give a VERY short last period for 
review, and then send the document for W3C Last Call.

We do expect to see feedback on the W3C Last Call. Issues will be raised.

Hopefully, we can start burning those down in June; how much progress we 
make determines how much time we will need for the next process steps.

Also hopefully, we'll have a stable spec.

NOTE: The preferred format for proposed minor fixes or changes in 
wording is a Git pull request.
Those are fast to process, and accomplish what the suggester wanted.
For stuff that actually changes the meaning of the document, mailing 
list discussion is desirable.

Harald, for the chairs.
