aloha!

the action item assigned to me as Action-2

http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/track/actions/2

was to convert a google spreadsheet into something more accessible (such 
as a definition list) but i have been unable to obtain the source code 
for the spreadsheet either from the google spreadsheets site, nor through 
an appeal to the spreadsheet's maintainers.  furthermore, i question the 
use of TF members' cycles to correct something that has been presented to 
the group in a less-than-optimal format which renders that information 
quite difficult to process non-visually.  frankly, i believe that the 
onus to "fix" such problems falls NOT on the shoulders of those who need 
a different format, but squarely on the shoulders of those who created 
non-compliant content in an open collaborative forum ostensively 
dedicated to accessibility. therefore, i ask that the action item be 
assigned to someone else, who can more readily translate a 
spreadsheet/table and its color coding into something interoperable and 
usable by all TF members.

as for action 7, that was assigned to me by RichS, during a canvas api 
TF call, and i am following up on the queries to braille experts, which 
i have made in regards the action item...  are Canvas API issues to be
tracked via the HTML A11y TF tracker, or will the CANVAS API group 
have its own tracker to reduce clutter on the main TF tracker? 
i think the confusion arose because Rich convened the canvas TF 
meeting in the same IRC channel that had been used earlier in the 
day for the main HTML A11y TF meeting, so some of the action items
which may have appeared in the minutes from the earlier meeting 
held in that IRC channel
