Subject: CfC - Orientation (2nd try)
Importance: High

Call For Consensus — ends November 22st at 5:00pm Boston time.

The Working Group has discussed a change to the Orientation SC, as proposed in this survey (https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35422/resoling_orientation/results)<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2002%2F09%2Fwbs%2F35422%2Fresoling_orientation%2Fresults)&data=02%7C01%7C%7C9de0747ce34b4a52b97308d52de7eb57%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636465396470480819&sdata=QNU3oV%2F7CHphXPOJP1me5FAbLeAlj0F1taiBdQFDmO0%3D&reserved=0> and discussed on the November 20 call (https://www.w3.org/2017/11/20-ag-minutes.html#item02).

The new proposed SC test is:
“Content does not restrict its view and operation to a single display orientation, such as portrait or landscape, unless a specific display orientation is essential.”

If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.
