The W3C Advisory Committee received advance notice today that the W3C
team invites input on the possible re-charter of the Web Platform
Working Group and creation of a new Service Workers Working Group.

The draft Web Platform WG re-charter
proposes a 6-month extension and the following changes in scope:
* New deliverables:
    Intersection Observers, Static Range (from WICG incubation)
* Moved from deliverable to potential deliverable:
    HTML 2D canvas
* Removed as deliverables (transferred to Service Workers WG)
    Service Workers; Background synchronization

The draft Service Workers WG charter
proposes a new working group "to specify event-driven services between
the network layer and the application, allowing it to handle network
requests gracefully even while offline."
* Adopt the Service Workers draft from the Web Platform WG and
Background Synchronization from WICG.

This advance notice is sent as we develop work in the Strategy Funnel:
and per 5.2.2 of the Process Document[1]. The team welcomes public
comments in the drafts' GitHub repositories. Early input, before the
formal AC review, helps us to write better charters.

--Wendy Seltzer, Strategy Lead
