One of the key components of the W3C is the Advisory Committee, composed of one representative from each W3C Member. The Advisory Committee has a number of roles described in the W3C Process: review, appeal, vote.

The design of the framework is still work in progress, is done in the open and public participation is free. We target to deliver a proposal by early June.

- comment in this blog,
- write to the
firstname.lastname@example.org list (publicly archive),
- edit the wiki directly,
- even use IRC (irc.w3.org, port 6665, channel #webizen).
