Hi WebAppSec WG,

The Device and Sensors Working Group requests review of the following
specification before 2017-12-31:

   Generic Sensor API
   https://www.w3.org/TR/generic-sensor/

Including the following concrete sensor specifications that extend
the Generic Sensor API:

   Ambient Light Sensor
   https://www.w3.org/TR/ambient-light/

   Accelerometer
   https://www.w3.org/TR/accelerometer/
   
   Gyroscope
   https://www.w3.org/TR/gyroscope/

   Magnetometer
   https://www.w3.org/TR/magnetometer/

   Orientation Sensor
   https://www.w3.org/TR/orientation-sensor/

Informative background material (not in scope of the wide review):

   Motion Sensors Explainer
   https://w3c.github.io/motion-sensors/

   Sensor Use Cases
   https://w3c.github.io/sensors/usecases

In particular the group requests review of the use of Permissions,
Feature Policy, and Secure Contexts specifications.

The group requests feedback via the respective specifications' GitHub
repositories, or via email to public-device-apis@w3.org.

These publications are Pre-Candidate Recommendation Drafts under the
2017 Process [1]. Therefore, the group is looking for confirmation
that it has satisfied its relevant technical requirements and
dependencies with other groups.

Thanks,

-Anssi (Device and Sensors WG Chair)
