Hi all,

As you may be aware, our proposed new WebRTC charter received formal 
objections during the Advisory Committee review. Since these objections 
were made in a Member-confidential setting, I'm not at liberty to give 
too much detail about them, but they essentially focused on our proposal 
to include a WebRTC-NG deliverable when the group hasn't reached LC for 
any of its current deliverables. You can find more about the objections 
at https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/33280/webrtc-2015/results

Working with the Chairs and the objectors, I've proposed an updated 
charter that removes the -NG deliverable, adds a liaison to the ORTC CG, 
and offers clarifications on our mode of work; the said charter and the 
diff to the one that was sent for AC Review are attached to this 
message. The said updated charter was acceptable to the objectors.

My expectations with this new charter would be that we make use of the 
proposed liaison to the ORTC group to develop a common understanding in 
the upcoming months, leading to a rechartering that includes an -NG 
converged deliverable once WebRTC 1.0 reaches stability and interop.

I have been consulting the AC Representatives that reviewed our original 
proposed charter, and I was asked to bring these modifications to the 
group for discussion before bringing the charter to W3C Director approval.

As an aside, since formally speaking this group is out of charter since 
the beginning of this month, depending on our pace of convergence on 
this proposal, I might have to request an extension of our expired 
charter to the Director to allow us to continue publishing technical 
reports (e.g. hopefully a Last Call of getUserMedia).

Thanks,

Dom
