No problem, Silvia. A procedure and criteria for adding the "a11ytf"
has not been agreed to yet so there is bound to be confusion. If you
had an action coming out of a teleconference to create a bug, that
certainly seems to me to be good criteria. Same with the bugs that
Maciej asked me to file for the text alternative change proposal.

I put up a page in the Wiki to track the matter and brainstorm ideas.
Please add your thoughts. Edit at will.

The initial set of "A11y" bugs which were determined to be accepted
[1] or rejected [2] had a boiler plate statement on them by Michael
Cooper.

Accept statement:

The HTML Accessibility Task Force intends to track these issues, per
the proposal at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Jan/0245.html.

Reject statement:

"Per the proposal at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Jan/0245.html,
the HTML A11Y TF does not plan to formally work on this issue at this
time. This does not mean the TF has no interest in it, but does not
have immediate plans to work on it. The TF may review the issue in the
future."

To avoid confusion going forward, we should probably have similar
language and a link to the decision, added to a11ytf bugs. That would
clearly document that the task force has decided to work on an item or
decline.

Best Regards,
Laura
