Hello Web Apps WG and TC39,

Arthur Barstow:

It was pointed out to me that there is still some concern about the
progress of Web IDL (understandably), so I just wanted to confirm that
from October I will be allocating some time to working on the document.
My plan of attack will be to:

  * finish the terminology porting to ES5 that Sam started
  * publish a WD
  * go through the mailing list archives for the time I’ve been away and
    gather up issues
  * resolve those issues and the ones that are currently identified in
    the document
  * publish a LCWD
