Hi all,

Is the accessibility task force official now? Sam seems to indicate
that it is the case in his agenda [1] for tomorrow's HTML WG
Teleconference. He also mentions that PF has a co-chair but not the
HTML WG. Who is the PF co-chair? Regarding the task force Sam wrote:

Thoughts everyone? Some things I am aware of:

As discussed at Friday's Caucus meeting [2], Michael set up this
mailing list and sent out the initial email to the group:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2009Oct/0001.html

He created the HTML Accessibility Task Force Home Page:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/wiki/HTML_Task_Force

He created a Wiki page to document the process to submit accessibility
spec bugs so that a copy goes to this list so the Task force will see
them.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/wiki/Process_to_submit_HTML_spec_comments

He created the Bugzilla keywords "a11y" and "PFWG"

I tagged the legacy accessibility bugs that I am aware of with "a11y".

I put together a Wiki page for Accessibility Issues in Tracker and
Bugs in Bugzilla
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/AccessibilityTrackerIssues

I put together a Wiki page to list all HTML WG Task Forces (We may
need to coordinate some with the other TFs):
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/TaskForces

As I don't seem to have permissions to edit in the New WAI Wiki,  so I
updated Gregory's original HTML5 Issue Collection and Requirements
Drafting Page with a few items:
http://esw.w3.org/topic/PF/XTech/HTML5

I started a wiki page for HTML Accessibility Task Force
Teleconferences (don't know if the details are right yet).
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/AccessibilityTaskForceTeleconferences

I started a place holder page for HTML Accessibility Task Force Meeting
Minutes
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/AccessibilityTaskForceMinutes

Anything else?

Best Regards,
Laura
