+    <p>This is the 19 March 2014 (Editor's Proposal for a) Last Call draft of
+      the W3C Process Document. This document has been produced by the W3C
+      Advisory Board's Process Chapter 7 Task Force, working in the <a href="http://www.w3.org/Community/w3process">Revising
+        W3C Process Community Group</a> and reviewed by the <a href="/Member/Board">W3C

+    <p>The only substantive changes between this draft and the <a href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/">14
+        October 2005 Process Document</a> are to <a href="tr.html">Chapter 7</a>.

+        Issue Tracker for chapter 7</a> and <a href="https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/AB/">detailed
+        changelogs</a> are available online. Major changes include</p>
+    <ul>
+      <li>New requirements that Working groups <em class="rfc2119">should</em>
+        document known implementation and <span class="rfc2119">must</span>
+        document expected next steps for all publications </li>
+      <li>New requirement that Working groups <em class="rfc2119">should</em>
+        publish abandoned work as a W3C Note</li>
+      <li>Recognition that Interest Groups <span class="rfc2119">may</span>
+        publish W3C Notes</li>
+      <li>If W3C closes a Working Group, they <em class="rfc2119">must</em>
+        republish its unfinished work as Notes. </li>
+      <li>Implementation requirements for passing beyond Candidate
+        Recommendation are not simply listed as "2 interoperable
+        implementations", instead a new sections gives guidance on what is
+        considered when assessing "<a href="#implementation-experience">adequate
+          implementation experience</a>".</li>
+      <li>Instead of relying on a Last Call publication for adequate review
+        Working Groups need to demonstrate "<a href="#wide-review">wide review</a>"
+        as part of the requirements to publish a spec as Candidate
+        Recommendation, while leaving them to achieve this as they see fit.</li>
+      <li>There is a stronger emphasis (without creating new formal
+        requirements) on getting review and testing implementation as early as
+        possible. How to do this is left to Working Groups to determine.</li>
+      <li>Last Call and Candidate Recommendation have been collapsed together.
+        Some of the requirements are therefore enforced earlier in the process.</li>
+      <li>Advisory Committee review now begins at the same time as Candidate
+        recommendation, but still ends no less than 4 weeks after publication as
+        a Proposed Recommendation.&nbsp;</li>
+      <li>The Director <em class="rfc2119">must</em> address dissenting AC
+        review comments <strong>publicly</strong>, 2 weeks <em>before</em>
+        publication of a Recommendation.</li>
+      <li>Errata cannot be made normative except by revising a Recommendation</li>
+    </ul>
