Hi All,

Last week I checked in two changes to the [Draft] charter:

[1] Added a statement that the expectation is WebApps will be 
re-chartered after the 2014-2016 charter expires (this is intended to 
reinforce a related statement already in the charter.

[2] Philippe reminded me the Consortium's process requires a WG charter 
include "milestone" data so I added 5 "priority" specs that are 
dependencies for specs by other groups and included my best "guestimate" 
on these specs' next milestone. I also included a link to [PubStatus] 
and state it should be used for current status of all of WebApps' specs.

WebApps' current [Charter] has nine specs with milestones and none of 
our predictions for the REC milestone were accurate. Because of this, my 
original draft did not include any milestone data. Although I think 
milestone data should be useful, I only support adding data if there is 
a relatively good probability plus resource commitment(s) to meet the 

Feedback on the new milestone data as well as proposals for other specs 
and their next milestone is welcome.

-Thanks, AB
