Hello I18N WG, PING, WS IG, APA WG and Rob,

[Rob, it would be good to have a review from the Article 29 Working 
Party, too. Are you able to get such a review?]

The Tracking Protection WG is about to publish an update of the 
Candidate Recommendation "Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)" and 
would like some review of the changes.

Of course, we welcome reviews of the whole specification, but we're most 
interested in comments on section 6, "User-Granted Exceptions", the only 
section with non-editorial changes.

That section describes the (JavaScript) API that Web sites can use to 
ask users to consent to tracking. This API has been rewritten from the 
previous CR, with fewer function calls and with JavaScript "Promises" as 
returned values instead of direct results.

We'd like to publish the new CR as soon as possible, so that DNT is 
ready when the new European regulations for online privacy come into 
force next year. If you could review the section within two weeks that 
would be great!

A copy of the specification formatted as a Candidate Recommendation is 
available here:

For the TP WG,
Bert
