Hello, webappsecians!

Mixed Content (http://www.w3.org/TR/mixed-content/) has been up as a
candidate recommendation since March 17th. The final patent exclusion
period expired on May 17th (
In the CR, we suggested that a transition to proposed recommendation could
be possible after a comment period extending through July 1st. As that date
is rapidly approaching, this is a Call for Consensus to transition to
Proposed Recommendation based on the version of the document at:


This document is substantively the same as the CR, with the following
normative changes:

1. I've dropped the "at risk" note for "deprecated TLS-protection":
(CCing Brian, who I believe was interested in the opposite, and Ryan, who
might or might not have implemented the SHA-1 bits for Chrome).

2. The CA/B forum's "baseline requirements" were inadvertently listed as a
normative reference. The new draft correctly lists them as informative:

A full list of changes can be found at
(and they're almost all in response to =JeffH's comments at

Kristijan is putting the finishing touches on an extensive test suite at
https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/pull/1889, and we expect it to
land in the near future. Interested folks are encouraged to play around
with the suite now. We expect substantial agreement on behavior across
Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer/Edge, and (hooray!) the beta release of
Safari on iOS9 and El Cap.

If you have any comments or concerns regarding this CfC, please reply to
public-webappsec@w3.org by the end of June 6th at the latest. Silence will
be interpreted as glowing praise and full-throated agreement, but I'd
encourage you to praise full-throatedly, glowingly, _and_ explicitly on the
list. :)
