Hi All,

WebApps has been asked to review and submit comments for the April 14 
Last Call Working Draft of WebRT and DAP's Media Capture and Streams spec:


WebApps is specifically mentioned re "the overall usage of Web IDL and 
the definition of error handling".

If anyone in WebApps wants to propose an official group response, please 
do so ASAP, in reply to this e-mail so the group can discuss it.

Comments should be sent to public-media-capture @ w3.org [1] by May 15. 
Presumably, the groups also welcome "silent review" type data such as "I 
reviewed section N.N and have no comments".

-Thanks, ArtB
