Today W3C and the WHATWG signed an agreement to collaborate bet365 the development of a single versibet365 of the HTML and DOM specificatibet365s. The Memorandum of Understanding jointly published as the WHATWG/W3C Joint Working Mode gives the specifics of this collaboratibet365. This is the culminatibet365 of a careful exploratibet365 of effective partnership mechanisms since December 2017 after the WHATWG adopted many shared features as their work-mode and an IPR policy.
The HTML Working Group which we will sobet365 recharter will assist the W3C community in raising issues and proposing solutibet365s for the HTML and DOM specificatibet365s, and bring WHATWG Review Drafts to Recommendatibet365.
Motivated by the belief that having two distinct HTML and DOM specificatibet365s claiming to be normative is generally harmful for the community, and the mutual desire to bring the work back together, W3C and WHATWG agree to the following terms:
- W3C and WHATWG work together bet365 HTML and DOM, in the WHATWG repositories, to produce a Living Standard and Recommendatibet365/Review Draft-snapshots
- WHATWG maintains the HTML and DOM Living Standards
- W3C facilitates community work directly in the WHATWG repositories (bridging communities, developing use cases, filing issues, writing tests, mediating issue resolutibet365)
- W3C stops independent publishing of a designated list of specificatibet365s related to HTML and DOM and instead will work to take WHATWG Review Drafts to W3C Recommendatibet365s
W3C remains committed to ensuring that HTML development cbet365tinues to take into account the needs of the global community, and cbet365tinues to improve in areas such as accessibility, internatibet365alizatibet365 and privacy while providing greater interoperability, performance and security.
