> Al, P&F WG,
> On June 25 the Web Applications WG published a Last Call Working  
> Draft of the Widgets 1.0 Requirements document:
> [[
> <http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-widgets-reqs-20080625/>
> Abstract: This document lists the design goals and requirements  
> that a specification would need to address in order to standardize  
> various aspects of widgets. Widgets are small client-side Web  
> applications for displaying and updating remote data, that are  
> packaged in a way to allow download and installation on a client  
> machine, mobile phone, or mobile Internet device. Typical examples  
> of widgets include clocks, CPU gauges, sticky notes, battery-life  
> indicators, games, and those that make use of Web services, like  
> weather forecasters, news readers, email checkers, photo albums and  
> currency converters.
> Introduction: A widget is an interactive single purpose application  
> for displaying and/or updating local data or data on the Web,  
> packaged in a way to allow a single download and installation on a  
> user's machine or mobile device. A widget may run as a stand alone  
> application (meaning it can run outside of a Web browser), or may  
> be embedded into a Web document. In this document, the runtime  
> environment on which a widget is run is referred to as a widget  
> user agent and a running widget is referred to as an instantiated  
> widget. Prior to instantiation, a widget exists as a widget  
> resource. For more information about widgets, see the Widget  
> Landscape document.

> We would appreciate any comments your WG has on this LC document,  
> especially those requirements relevant to your WG's domain/scope.  
> The comment period ends 1 August 2008.
