<h1>Editor's draft proposed new W3C Process Document</h1>
<h2>12 <a name="GAProcess" id="GAProcess">Process Evolution</a></h2>
<div class="toc"></div>
<!--NewPage-->
<!-- this is for html2ps -->
<p>The <a name="ProcessDoc" id="ProcessDoc">W3C Process Document</a> undergoes
similar consensus-building processes as technical reports, with the <a href=
"organization.html#AB">Advisory Board</a> acting as the sponsoring Working
Group.</p>
<p>The Advisory Board initiates review of a Process Document as follows:</p>
<ol>
<li>The Team sends a Call for Review to the Advisory Committee and other W3C
groups.</li>
<li>After comments have been <a href="policies.html#formal-address">formally
addressed</a> and the document possibly modified, the Team seeks endorsement
from the Members by initiating an <a href="acreview.html#ACReview">Advisory
Committee review</a> of a Proposed Process Document. The review period
<span class="rfc2119">MUST</span> last at least <span class=
"time-interval">four weeks</span>.</li>
<li><a href="acreview.html#ACReviewAfter">After the Advisory Committee
review</a>, if there is consensus, the Team enacts the new process officially
by announcing the <a href="acreview.html#def-w3c-decision">W3C decision</a> to
the Advisory Committee. If there was <a href=
"policies.html#def-Dissent">dissent</a>, Advisory Committee representatives
<span class="rfc2119">MAY</span> <a href="acreview.html#ACAppeal">appeal</a>
the decision.</li>
</ol>
<p>W3C <span class="rfc2119">MAY</span> also modify a Process Document by
following the processes for <a href="tr.html#rec-modify">modifying a
Recommendation</a>.</p>
<p>Reviews of the Process Document are not public reviews.</p>
