To be clear, I am not expecting, or asking for, technical discussion of VTT issues at the Face to Face. Just a formal decision that the CR transition should happen.

I would hope that the commenters can look at the large amount of (personal, volunteer) time that Silvia has spent on this on the last couple of months, and enable us to close the issues, but I recognize that time is always a scarce resource.

I think that the major issue that needed addressing before CR was Andreas’ first wide-review comment on needing come built-in colors, and his linked second one on more closely defining conformance classes, both of which we have reached assent on. Nigel’s actionable comments that remain to be reviewed by him are appreciated, and are being addressed, but I am not sure that any need to hold up a resolution to proceed to CR; we expect to address them before CR (for the most part, pull requests are ready), and indeed I would suggest that we could ease pressure on Nigel by saying that we’ll take the proposed fixes into the CR and go ahead, and he need not review and comment if time is pressing (a problem I understand, as I have been trying not be be VTT co-chair for the longest time for the exact same reason).

So, to be clear, we need the formal resolution from the WG that VTT is cooked (perhaps, rather over-done) to the CR point and we should formally declare CR and ask for implementations to catch up. No discussion of detailed issues (we’d need to be sure to have Silvia and ideally Simon and Philip, and Silvia is on vacation next week). That’s why I think that 30 minutes is generous.
