Dear group

There was an inquiry about the current status of our working documents after a travel period. I want to use this to get the whole group up to speed with the latest developments, mainly to get the charter work going:


1.      The wiki now has a "Latest Updates" section. Check this whenever coming back to the IG from other matters: https://www.w3.org/WoT/IG/wiki/Main_Page

2.      We now have a charter process on GitHub:

a.      We started with a boilerplate template that has now specific content yet

b.      Everyone is encourage to add their envisioned item through a pull-request (PR). Each PR must be a modular charter item with a useful title (e.g., IG scope "Outreach"<https://github.com/w3c/wot/pull/152> or Coordination with W3C Groups<https://github.com/w3c/wot/pull/151>). That is, it must provide the corresponding content for the charter. For scope items, this is a descriptive text (<p>) and a summery list item (<li>). For work items / deliverables, this is an entry into the description list (with <dt> and <dd>). Etc.

c.      Everyone should check the diff (e.g., https://github.com/w3c/wot/pull/144/files) and then leave a comment with change proposals or a "+1" when agreeing.

d.      The author of the PR is then required to update his PR accordingly.

e.      Summary: Each PR that you find here https://github.com/w3c/wot/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22IG+Re-charter%22 should define a modular addition to the charter. If someone has comments, use the comments for the respective PR.

3.      Do to the pressing timeline, we need to decide which PRs we merge in the WebConf TOMORROW! Thus, please add your comments!

4.      We also want to approve the WG charter tomorrow to prepare it for the external review (AC Refs etc.). So check the items here https://github.com/w3c/wot/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22WG+Charter%22 and open a PR if you have change requests.

Since these are the urgent matters, I will leave it with that.

Best regards
Matthias
