48-Hour Call for Consensus (CfC): Web Payments Accessibility CG

From: Janina Sajka <janina@rednote.net>
Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2017 13:23:16 -0400
To: Accessible Platform Architectures Administration <public-apa-admin@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20170314172316.GP2567@opera.rednote.net>
Colleagues:

This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Accessible Platform
Architectures (APA) Working Group on a proposal to create the Web
Payments Accessibility Community Group.

*	BACKGROUND

We have committed to provide all necessary use cases and requirements,
as well as specification and document review of W3C's Web Payments
Activity:

To date this activity has been conducted by an informal APA Subteam
which has met from time to time, has reviewed and provided us comments
on several Web Payments specifications, and has begun a note track
document laying out use cases and requirements regarding web payments
accessibility in a document entitled the "Payments Accessibility User
Requirements (PAUR)."

This Call for Consensus (CfC) proposes that APA establish a W3C
Community Group to work on these issues in order to expand participation
in this effort beyond existing W3C membership. In particular we are
aware of several nonmembers willing and interested in participating in
this work effort.

*	THE PROPOSAL

group name:    Web Payments Accessibility Community Group
short name:    payments-a11y

description:

<p>The mission of the Web Payments Accessibility Community Group 
(Payments A11Y CG) is to provide an ongoing forum for the evaluation and 
articulation of comprehensive support for accessibility to people with 
disabilities in W3C web payments-related specifications and technical 
documents. These specifications are generally developed by the <a 
href="https://www.w3.org/Payments/WG/">Web Payments Working Group</a>.</p>

<p>The Payments A11Y CG will track developments in, and work
collaboratively with the various groups in W3C's <a
href="http://www.w3.org/Payments/">Web Payments Activity</a>, and most
particularly with the <a href="http://www.w3.org/Payments/IG/">Web
Payments Interest Group</a></p>

<p>The Payments A11Y CG will develop and document use cases and
requirements to support accessibility in web payments across all known
scenarios that encompass the widely varying technologies and human
abilities utilized by persons living with physical, cognitive, and
sensory disabilities to be submitted to the <a
href="https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/">Accessible Platform Architectures
(APA) Working Group</a> for consideration as a potential W3C Note,
"Payments Accessibility User Requirements (PAUR)."</p>

<p>The Payments A11Y CG shall additionally advise APA on 
payments-related specifications and technical documents being developed 
by W3C groups to assist APA in its chartered horizontal review 
responsibility.</p>

*       ACTION TO TAKE

This CfC is now open for objection, comment, as well as statements of
support via email. Silence will be interpreted as support, though
messages of support are certainly welcome.

If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this
proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later
than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time, Sunday 19 March.
