Hello Second Screen WG participants,

Our charter expires end of October. The group needs to renew the charter before that to finalize its work on the Presentation API and on the Remote Playback API. Based on discussions we had at last F2F, my understanding is that there is no real incentive to change the scope of the Working Group right now (that need may arise later on depending on the outcomes of discussions in the Community Group).

With that in mind, I prepared a draft of a possible new charter for your review:

Main changes are:
- I dropped "Presentation" from the group's name to reflect practice. We're basically known as the "Second Screen Working Group"
- The group would be chartered for another year with the same scope
- I updated the deliverables section to reflect current status and current plans
- I noted the possibility to work on a version 2 of the Presentation API in particular, noting that it won't be final by the end of the charter and that a new charter, possibly with a new scope, might be needed after that.

I tried to keep the diff with the previous charter minimal on purpose, to ease your review, that of W3M and that of the W3C Advisory Committee when a call for review is issued:

Could you review that draft by end of next week (9 September) and let me know whether it fits your needs or whether you have other views? 
I will take the draft charter to W3C Management for review once that is done.
