Dear Advisory Committee Representatives, Chairs, AB, and TAG,

I am pleased to announce the approval of the:

   W3C Process Document
   1 August 2014
   Charles McCathie Nevile (Yandex), Editor

This document was developed between the W3C Advisory Board and the 
Revising W3C Process Community Group. It was reviewed twice by the W3C 
Membership; see below for information about the most recent review comments.

A Process transition FAQ answers questions pertinent to W3C groups, 
implementers, reviewers, and others.

Please send comments on the new Process for the FAQ to 

Groups may publish under the new Process beginning 2 September 2014; 
infrastructure changes are underway and being tested.

Congratulations to the community for their work on this update to the 
W3C Process!

This announcement follows section 12 ("Process Evolution") of the 2014 

For Jeff Jaffe, CEO;
Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications

Changes based on Member Review

Member responses to the 7 May call for review [1] led to a number of 
editorial changes [2] and new issues to be addressed in a future revision.

One reviewer withdrew a Formal Objection after reviewing the editorial 
changes, the creation of a Process Transition FAQ [3], and clarification 
that Working Groups may continue to operate under the 2005 Process for a 
2-year transition period.
