Hi all,

I wanted to introduce quickly some of the work that happened last spring
and will hopefully serve as a useful starting point for the work this
group is pursuing.

As part of the W3C headlights 2013 [1], I formed and led [2] a task
force of ~20 people to look at where Web technologies lagged behind
native ones, named "Closing the gap with Native" [3].

That task force, which included at least two of the co-chairs of this
IG, had a number of pretty productive discussions [4] on a wide range of
topics, from technical gaps (e.g. good offline support) to more
structural ones (e.g. how can W3C better react to developer's input).

I presented the conclusions of the task force to the W3C advisory
committee in June:
http://www.w3.org/2013/Talks/dhm-closingthegap/
and a further refinement of these findings to W3C management in July.

Among the results of these conclusions [5], I have been put in charge of
ensuring that the needs highlighted by the task force, as well as the
ones this Interest Group will establish, get indeed fulfilled in a
timely fashion, with increased coordination and focus from the relevant
W3C Working Groups.

I fully intend to use the Web and Mobile Interest Group as a big driver
of this coordination and focus, as well as input to determining where
the priorities should be set.

A key time in this exercise is the W3C staff-internal quarterly meeting
for "strategic management of standards", the next occurrence of which
will be in December; I hope we can thus work toward establishing a clear
set of checkpoints in advance of that meeting.

I have also made good progress toward a gap analysis document that I
hope to submit to this group in the upcoming few weeks as a possible
starting point for our "gap analysis deliverable".
