(as chairs)

Gabriel and I started the WG last call process for version -07 on April 
25th, 2011 (until May 9th),
since then two new version -08 and -09 have been produced
to address all the comments/discussion received during the WG LC time 
and after

the IESG process requires that once the WG LC is over and the document 
is ready
it has to be submitted to IESG for publication...
so we have asked the IESG to publish it,
I will be the Document Shepherd for it.

(if you are not familiar with the IETF process see: 
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4858#section-3 )

Now we are on the AD evaluation phase:
Peter Saint-Andre is the Application AD responsible for HyBi wg;
(you can check all the information from the tracker:
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-hybi-thewebsocketprotocol/ )

In order to address the last, mostly editorials comments/fix we have 
asked the editors to produce
a new version -10 for July 11th

as soon the version -10 is produced we will ask
to start the two weeks broader IESG/IETF last call that involve all the 
IETF community (not only the HyBi wg):
the discussion will happen on the IETF discussion list (ietf@ietf.org)

The idea is to take advantage of the IETF81 meeting in Quebec to discuss 
all the comments received
on version -10

what next:
now that the WebSocket Protocol is stable, it is time to discuss the 
extension that we have put on hold for a while
and decide on what we want to work.
among the others I have in my notes:
     - Multiplexing
     - per Frame deflate extension 
     - Timeout (draft-thomson-hybi-http-timeout)
     - DNS SRV for WebSocket (draft-ibc-websocket-dns-srv)

forgive me and let me know if I forgot something... or there is other 
stuff you think is important to discuss
