Hi WebAppSec editors,

A reminder that has come up in some recent transition calls: When moving
a spec to Candidate Recommendation, we look to see that the normative
references are to documents of equivalent stability[1] -- ideally, also
CR, if they're W3C documents. So if you're moving a document forward,
it's a good idea to look periodically at the references and ping the
other working groups where those are being developed to make sure that
dependencies are moving at the pace we need. (This also helps to satisfy
the "wide review" requirements.)

Thanks for all the good work lately,
--Wendy
