Re: [Public WebGL] WEBKIT_ extensions




I would like this to be discussed in the next conference call: are there any objections to renaming/cloning WEBKIT_lose_context as WEBGL_EXT_lose_context ?


It now seems that we're going to keep the WEBKIT_lose_context name in the interim.

For the other APIs the convention is to use EXT for multi-vendor but not
Khronos ratified extensions. That would seem to be appropriate here too.
It is nuts to have different names for the same extension in different
browsers.

So the name of the extension would be EXT_lose_context. The name string
for enabling it would be WEBGL_EXT_lose_context as extensions always
start with the API name.

In the case of WEBKIT_lose_context, since it is so simple and useful for all browsers, I would really like it to become WEBGL_lose_context. Does anybody object to that and what steps need to be taken to make that happen?

There was some previous discussion about this here: http://www.khronos.org/webgl/public-mailing-list/archives/1012/threads.html#00092


At the time, there were reservations about adding the WEBGL tag without more general approval or ratification from Khronos.

Thanks, I didn't remember this conversation. Since it seems to have been such a large debate, for now we will just rename it to MOZ_lose_context on our side until consensus for WEBGL_lose_context happens.

Can I go ahead and add MOZ_lose_context to the registry?

I disagree with the arguments that WEBGL_lose_context is not needed as
it could be implemented in pure JavaScript. A big focus at the moment
is to get Web developers to care about contextlost/contextrestored
events. It would help if we could just point them to a
WEBGL_lose_context extension to test their app's behavior in all
supporting browsers, rather than having to use a shim for all WebGL
entry points.

Cheers,
Benoit
