Hello Spec Mentors,

Can you please help assign a mentor for this request from Microsoft? The PM Diego González <luig...@microsoft.com> is requesting assistance. Can you also please educate on what permissions are required for posting to this group?

Thanks in advance,

Ajay Rahatekar
TPgM : Web Platform.

Subject: Mentorship request to improve spec writing skills




I am Diego, and I am the PM for PWA platform features in Edge. Part of my work consists of being able to quickly write specifications for new and upcoming features, and I would like to request mentorship since I am fairly inexperienced in this, and I would like to improve these skills.


At the moment I am working on getting protocol_handlers and url_handlers into the manifest spec, getting a draft spec for Window Controls Overlay, and with the Device Posture spec.




Diego González-Zúñiga

PM, Microsoft Edge

Hi Ajay/Diego, we'll be happy to help! I'll give it the usual day or two to see if we have any volunteers, before assigning someone if necessary.

Hi there, I want to say sorry for the delay in getting you a mentor for these three specs you mentioned. (Although it looks like +Joshua Bell has already somewhat volunteered for Window Controls Overlay?) I usually try to get something within 2 days, but this week is a "no meetings week" at Google where many of the mentors work, which means a lot of them are on vacation.

I'm continuing to reach out to try to find appropriate mentors for you as soon as I can. In the meantime if you have any specific questions that a mentor would be helpful for, I'm happy to volunteer temporarily, although I don't have the bandwidth to do a full mentorship.

Sorry about this,

Dominic Farolino

I also don't have the time for full-on mentorship, but I'm happy to try and answer one-off questions or provide a little help where necessary!

Hi Ajay and Diego,

+Reilly Grant has volunteered to be your spec mentor for the Device Posture spec, and +Joshua Bell for the Window Controls Overlay spec. We're still working on someone for the manifest additions.

Please feel free to reach out to those folks directly if you want to discuss how they can help, or set up a video call or whatever!

And we've got a third! +Matt Giuca has volunteered to help mentor changes to the manifest spec.
