One last reminder to those of you who have not already joined the ORTC CG
before we suspend the ORCA CG.

Hello ORCA Community Group members.

We are changing the CG name from ORCA to ORTC as requested by some of our
members and other W3C members for various reasons discussed in that last CG
meeting. Minutes can be found here: http://ortc.org/ortc-cg-meetings/

After discussing this with the W3C we had the choice to a.) change the name
to ORTC but keep the current ORCA URI or b.) set up an entirely new CG.
Since we didn't want any confusion (ORTC CG name with a ORCA URI) we opted
for the second option.

We have been told that a second legal review should not be necessary by
your sponsoring organization since the new CG is simply replacing the
existing CG.

Here is what that means to you as a member of ORCA:

   - You will need to join the new CG: http://www.w3.org/community/ortc/
   - You will need to join the public
   - Signups for the ORCA group will soon be suspended
   - Emails sent to the ORCA mail lists will not go through, you will need
   to use the new lists for new postings. Emails sent to the orca lists will
   return a message pointing to the new lists at ORTC
   - ORCA mail lists will live on and will be referenced for historical
   - All Community Groups fall under the guidelines in the W3C Community
   Contributor License Agreement
   so nothing changes there.

Soon we hope to publish a Public Working Draft of the API so that we can
start implementing the API.  Some of that work has already begun:

If you have any questions about the name change please forward those to

Thank you all for you continued support!
