Re: CfC: to publish "The srcset attribute" specification as a First Public Working Draft (FPWD)

I'd like to clarify two things:

1) The srcset="" specification is not a proposal of the Responsive
   Images Community Group, although feedback from the members of that
   group have certainly contributed to the feature's design.

2) By working on the srcset="" nor <picture> specifications within this
   working group, those working on them are not delaying other work that
   you or other WG members may want to take on. In particular, if you
   would like to work on a proposal for an adaptive images feature that
   relies on layout information, please do so! I would be happy to
   review a draft in that area.

I think we can address such confusion within these drafts when and if a
more general solution is produced.
