Hi all,

Apologies, but please don't use the link in the previous email as a draft of the current Tracking Compliance work at W3C; it's a pre-publication test for review by the Working Group and explicitly not a version to be cited.

You can see the latest editor's draft of the Tracking Compliance and Scope specification here:

And the latest stable version is the Last Call Working Draft, available here:

We hope to have a stable Candidate Recommendation published soon, which is likely to be basically the same text as the editor's draft.

You might notice first of all that the formatting is different from other documents we've published; that's because there is a new stylesheet being used for all Recommendation-track documents that this automatically uses. I think it looks cleaner, and even has a nice Table of Contents sidebar when the window is wide enough for it.

I've created a wiki page which we could use as the implementation report, as we've been doing with the TPE.

> Following the model of the TPE, I expect that the CR would end no earlier than 3 months away, and that we wouldn't anticipate having sufficient implementation experience until 3 months after that. The actual length of the Candidate Recommendation phase will of course depend on the actual work of adopting and implementing Compliance and documentation in an implementation report.
> Implementers of the Compliance specification (as opposed to the companion TPE specification) are servers only, not user agents. Implementation will consist in adopting and claiming adherence to the Compliance specification. Testing and documentation will require verification of compliance requirements via, for example, published statements, rather than executed software test cases. As a similar example, see the Website Tests in the Geolocation Implementation Report:

> We didn't specify any features as at risk, so I expect the typical exit criteria would apply:

> Some of the implementation data on the TPE wiki page that describes server-side implementations might be a start already, although I'm not sure if any/many of those server-side implementations are claiming adherence to any particular version of Tracking Compliance and Scope.
