RE: Pointer Events Charter?

Just saw this.  We can schedule for next week – or if no one has feedback on the proposal, perhaps we don’t need to meet and can just start the review process?

I'm available today too, but probably too late for the west coasters?

FWIW I'm available for a call today if needed, but in principle I agree with the changes that Jacob made in the PR.

Hi, Jacob–

It doesn't seem like the call was scheduled for tomorrow. Should we try
anyway, or should we be more proactive for next week?

Hi Doug,

Thanks for sending (beat me to it!).  Since we're producing editor's
drafts of the Pointer Events L2 spec and have consensus that the
group wants to eventually publish that as a Recommendation, we agree
that the next step is to recharter the Pointer Events WG.

I've submitted a PR to your charter draft that provides our suggested
changes [1]. To summarize:

* For the Scope intro, I've used similar text to the previous PEWG
charter. - I've added specific example features we intend to pursue
for 2.0 that weren't in 1.0. These are meant to be examples and not a
commitment nor an exhaustive list. * For Out of Scope, I have copied
the same scope as the previous PEWG charter. * Pointer Events 2.0
deliverable - I've removed the language about building on the Touch
Events specification. I don't believe it's a goal for the PE 2.0
deliverable to incorporate any Touch Events features. * Added Github
as a forum for technical discussion and communication * Added Touch
Events Community Group as a point of coordination for the PEWG given
the related technology

Shall we schedule a call next week to discuss next steps for

Hi, folks–

As you know, the Pointer Events WG charter expired on 9 November
2015, so there is currently no formal WG; this isn't really a problem
until we want to publish something, but it does tend to detract from
a sense of urgency and momentum.

During the last Pointer Events / Touch Events telcon [1], on 3
November, the conclusion was that we did indeed want to recharter the
Pointer Events WG (or some new WG that continues the work of Pointer
Events and Touch Events).

I've drafted a very rough charter, and I need your concrete feedback
on what the charter should say, what work is in scope, and what
deliverables (i.e. specs) should be listed.

We sent out early notice to the AC that this rechartering was going
on, but it seems to have stalled out. The next step is to finalize
the charter, and put it out for AC review.

I haven't yet received any feedback on the new charter, or
suggestions on what it should say; it's not yet ready for AC review,
and it won't be until I get this crucial feedback.

Do we still want to re-form the Pointer Events WG, or are we still in
a holding pattern in the Community Group.

Please advise me on what you'd like to do at this point.



Regards– –Doug
