Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

The Director is pleased to announce the re-charter of the Web Platform
Working Group:


The mission of the Web Platform Working Group is to continue the
development of the HTML language and provide specifications that enable
improved client-side application development on the Web, including
application programming interfaces (APIs) for client-side development
and markup vocabularies for describing and controlling client-side
application behavior.

Changes from the previous charter [1] include:

New deliverables:
      Intersection Observers, Static Range
Moved from deliverable to potential deliverable:
      HTML 2D canvas
Removed as deliverables:
      Service Workers; Background synchronization (transferred to new WG)
      High-level user events
A further 6-month extension of the Working Group
Updated expected milestones
Removed note aspiring to modularisation of HTML
      It's often a useful goal, but pragmatic decisions have shown there
is no clearly right answer and the Working Group makes things externally
or integrates them on a case-by-case basis.

Please use the following form to join or re-join the group; the form
will also instruct you how to nominate participants:


Current participants are required to re-join this group because its
scope has changed.

The Web Platform WG Co-Chairs are Adrian Bateman (Microsoft), LĂ©onie
Watson (The Paciello Group), and Charles McCathie Nevile (Yandex).

The W3C Staff Contacts are Yves Lafon <ylafon@w3.org> and Xiaoqian Wu
<xiaoqian@w3.org>, for a total of 1 FTE.
