Dear Philipp,

This is a transition request for the document "WebRTC 1.0: Real-time
Communication Between Browsers" to First Public Working Draft.

The document, ready for publication (once moved to /TR/ and with the
right stylesheet and publication date), is available at:

This document is published by the Web Real-Time Communications Working
Group. It defines a set of APIs to enable real-time communications
between Web browsers and devices. The document is not complete and still
subject to major changes, but already provides a good indication of what
the group is trying to achieve.

The publication is requested with the following info:
- short name: webrtc
- publication date: 27 October 2011
- URIs: http://www.w3.org/TR/webrtc/
     and: http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-webrtc-2011-10-27/

Abstract and Status of This Document are copied as text at the end of
this message.

The Web Real-Time Communications Working Group approved the publication
of the document as First Public Working Draft after a call for consensus:

Stefan Håkansson, for the Chairs


This document defines a set of APIs that allow local media, including
audio and video, to be requested from a platform, media to be sent over
the network to another browser or device implementing the appropriate
set of real-time protocols, and media received from another browser or
device to be processed and displayed locally.

Status of This Document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of
      its publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list
      of current W3C publications and the latest revision of this
      technical report can be found in the [14]W3C technical reports index
      at http://www.w3.org/TR/.

      This document is a First Public Working Draft and is not complete.
      It is subject to major changes and, while early experimentations are
      encouraged, it is therefore not intended for implementation. The API
      is based on preliminary work done in the WHATWG. The Web Real-Time
      Communications Working Group expects this specification to evolve
      significantly based on:
        * The outcomes of ongoing exchanges in the companion RTCWEB group
          at IETF to define the set of protocols that, together with this
          document, will enable real-time communications in Web browsers.
        * Privacy issues that arise when exposing local capabilities and
          local streams.
        * Technical discussions within the group, on the data channel in
        * Experience gained through early experimentations.
        * Feedback received from other groups and individuals.

      As the specification matures, the group hopes to strike the right
      balance between a low-level API that would enable interested parties
      to tweak potentially complex system parameters, and a more
      high-level API that Web developers can use without a priori
      technical knowledge about real-time communications.

      This document was published by the [15]Web Real-Time Communications
      Working Group as an Editor's Draft. If you wish to make comments
      regarding this document, please send them to
      [16]public-webrtc@w3.org@w3.org ([17]subscribe, [18]archives). All
      feedback is welcome.

      February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a [20]public list of
      any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of
      the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a
      patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the
      individual believes contains [21]Essential Claim(s) must disclose
      the information in accordance with [22]section 6 of the W3C Patent
