1. Privacy review request from the Devices and Sensors WG - Geolocation API

Link: https://w3c.github.io/geolocation-api/

This specification defines an API that provides scripted access to geographical location information associated with the hosting device. It is now maintained by the Devices and Sensors WG, and contains the following substantive changes since the last REC:

 - Now Controlled by feature policy
 - Fixed confusion around callback interfaces not being an EventHandler
 - Only expose the API in SecureContexts
 - Renamed the interfaces and dictionaries + removal of [NoInterfaceObject] + [SameObject] annotation on geolocation attribute

(Note: the DAS WG is also working on a new API based on the Generic Sensor API: https://w3c.github.io/geolocation-sensor/ )
