I confirm by this email that the appeal is not proceeding.  At the time
that Peter shared this update with the Working Group and subsequently as
of the end of the W3C Advisory Committee comment period today, less than
five percent of the Advisory Committee membership had supported the appeal.

Therefore the decision of the Director to extend the Tracking Protection
Working Group until 30 April 2014 stands as announced on February 12.

Once again, I thank you for all your continued cooperative work on
behalf of the Web Community.

Regards,
Ralph Swick, W3C COO
