Re publishing a LC#2 of WARP, first a very brief background summary  
for the newcomers ...

On July 9 [Jul-09] the group decided the WARP spec was feature  
complete and hence met the criteria for a LCWD. The group then  
reaffirmed that decision on July 30 [Jul-30] and LC#1 was published  
on August 4 [LC#1]. During LC#1's comment period (ended 20-Sep-2009),  
a sufficient number of comments were submitted such that addressing  
the comments created the need to publish a new WD which will be LC#2.

On November 3, as agreed during the f2f meeting, a 2-week pre-LC  
comment period was started [444] for LC#2. The intent of that review  
period was to verify the changes Robin made to the spec to address  
the LC#1 comments. It was _not_ an open call for new features or new  

During the November 19 widget call [Nov-19], we spent considerable  
time discussing how to handle requests for new requirements/features  
but did not reach consensus. There a couple of options to address new  
requirements and features and we should continue to discuss the options.

Additionally, on November 13 Apple disclosed that two of its patent  
applications were excluded from the W3C's Royalty-Free Licensing  
Requirements citing the 18-June-2009 FPWD of WARP [Exclusions].

To move the spec forward, aligned with the feature set agreed in  
July, and to give the forthcoming PAG a formally published spec that  
reflects WARP's agreed feature set, later this week I intend to start  
a 1-week CfC to publish WARP LC#2 based on the latest Editor's Draft  
[ED]. (Note the last change to the ED was 3-Nov-2009, Revision 1.35,  
despite the title including the current date.)
