Team Charter

The Style team is a group of engineers, working at Google (Sydney and Tokyo), Opera (Oslo) and Samsung. We are tasked with improving the style engine in Blink. Our responsibility is to maintain and improve style resolution and application (core/css/resolver, core/style), as well as the other parts of CSS (core/css).

The Style Team triages bugs with the component Blink>CSS.
