The Last Call comment period for the HTML5 Web Messaging spec ended June 
1. The status of this spec is: no comments were submitted to 
public-webapps during the LC comment period; Bugzilla reports this spec 
has Zarro Boogs [1]; and the changes to the spec since the LC was 
published appear to not affect an implementation [2] (I encourage others 
to confirm this).

One comment [3] was submitted during the CfC to publish the LC period, 
and no one responded to this comment. Hixie - would you or someone else 
in the group please respond to this comment?

Nevertheless, I would like the group to proceed with this spec so I 
propose the spec be published as a Candidate Recommendation (CR) and 
this is a Call for Consensus to do so:


A test suite has not been agreed by the Working Group, and will not be 
required for the CR to be published. However, agreeing on a test suite 
will be part of the work that must be done before this spec can move 
further than CR.

The Editor's Draft does not yet include CR exit criteria. I would expect 
the criteria to be similar to our previous CRs i.e. to require a 
thorough test suite and at least two implementations that pass all 
tests. Given the relatively broad implementation support for this spec 
(e.g. see [4]), I propose status section state the spec will advance to 
PR no sooner than 8 weeks after the CR is published.

This CfC satisfies: a) the group's requirement to "record the group's 
decision to request advancement" to CR; and b) "General Requirements for 
Advancement on the Recommendation Track" as defined in the Process Document:


Positive response to this CfC is preferred and encouraged and silence 
will be considered as agreement with the proposal. The deadline for 
comments is June 9. Please send all comments to:
