Friends, colleagues

VTT has been in a fairly quiet ‘implement and fix bugs and other inclarities in the spec.’ mode, but there is one feature request that came up while we are getting wide review of the spec as a result of the FPWD.

The question came up actually when we were first designing VTT, but we shelved it until now.  The request is to make it possible to provide styling in the VTT file.  

At the moment, both the technical discussion (how do to it) and the process discussion (should we do it in this version or the next) are happening in the bug tracker:

While I hate it when conversations happen in two or three places, I want to be sure that all members of both groups are aware of both aspects of this conversation and have a chance to make their opinions known, on the needs, on the design, on the timing, and so on.

Obviously comments on the bug would be welcome, but follow-ups to either the CG or WG would be fine also.  I’ll try to make sure everyone sees at least the Best Bits of any Relevant Conversation :-)

On the process, I am cautious about introducing a feature when we want to go to CR, but on the other hand, I don’t see any point in asking for a CR transition if the response to that request will be the statement from the community that this feature is missing.  It’s useful, envisioned for a long time, and can be done in a clean way, I think.
