> Further to the 21 December 2018 call for review [1], I am pleased to announce the approval of the 2019 World Wide Web Consortium Process Document which will take effect on 1 March 2019:

> 
> This document was developed by the W3C Advisory Board working with the Revising W3C Process Community Group. It was reviewed by the W3C Membership; see below for information about the review comments.
> 
> Major changes include:
> * Change the size of the Advisory Board from a fixed 9 to a range of 9 to 11 elected members and adjust the election mechanics accordingly;
> * Allow one person to represent (with disclosure) multiple organizations in a Working Group;
> * Added new Contributor License Grants to define the requirements for contributions made by non-WG members;
> * Many clarifications and refinements to reduce ambiguities and undefined behavior.
> 
> See also the diff document showing changes from Process 2018:
> https://www.w3.org/2019/Process-20190301/diff-20180201.html
> 
> Groups may publish under the new Process beginning 1 March 2019; infrastructure changes are underway and being tested. The new process will supersede the current version of the W3C Process Document approved in 2018, which means that all groups using Process 2018 will automatically move to Process 2019. A one-month grace period is granted to document editors, for publications to properly reference Process 2019.
> 
> Please send comments on the new Process Document as issues in the w3c/w3process GitHub Repository [2], or if you are unable to do so you may send them in email to <public-w3process@w3.org> (publicly archived [3]) or to process-issues@w3.org (Member-only archive [4]).
> 
> Congratulations to the community for their work on this update to the W3C Process!
> 
> This announcement follows section 11 ("Process Evolution") of the 2018 Process Document:
