Dear members of the Publishing Working Group,

The Publishing Working Group charter [1] is hereby extended until 1 
November 2020.

The mission of the Publishing Working Group is to enable all Web 
Publications — with all their specificities and traditions — to become 
first-class entities on the Web. The WG will provide the necessary 
technologies on the Open Web Platform to make the combination of 
traditional publishing and the Web complete in terms of accessibility, 
usability, portability, distribution, archiving, offline access, and 
reliable cross referencing. The Working Group is concentrating on 
defining a standard format for Audiobooks in the form of an Audiobook 
profile.

The Working Group has published two Candidate Recommendations:

   Publication Manifest
   https://www.w3.org/TR/pub-manifest/

   Audio books
   https://www.w3.org/TR/audiobooks/

The Working Group has been extended while it collects enough 
implementations that are required, per the success criteria, to advance 
these documents to Proposed Recommendations.

More information about this group and information about participation 
can be found on its home page [2].

The group is currently chaired by Tzviya Siegman (Wiley), Wendy Reid 
(Rakuten/Kobo), and Garth Conboy (Google).

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
the Publishing Working Group Team Contact Ivan Herman <ivan@w3.org>.

This extension follows section 5.2.5 of the W3C Process Document:

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director;
Philippe Le Hégaret, Project Management Lead,
Ivan Herman, Publishing Working Group Team Contact;
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
