We have had four new a11y bug reported. Details are in section two.

A draft survey for the CAPTCHA bug was presented to Mike Smith
fourteen weeks ago. A status update would be useful. Details are in
section three.

We currently have an "A11yTF" keyword backlog of thirty-three bugs.
Details are in section four.

Complete details are as follows.

1. REOPENED BUGS:

Bug 9241: "Explicitly state, 'For guidance on accessibility
requirements for text alternatives authors should consult WCAG 2.0'

I reopened this bug after Ian reverted the change that he had
previously instituted.

3. CAPTCHA BUG:

A draft survey for the CAPTCHA bug was delivered to Mike Smith on March 21.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/CAPTCHA_Survey
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Mar/0437.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Mar/0402.html

As discussed at the March 18 teleconference, the target time frame to
go live was over thirteen weeks ago.
http://www.w3.org/2010/03/18-html-a11y-minutes.html#item02

Mike, what's up with this? Has it been decided to not hold a survey or
postpone a survey or cancel a survey? Is this bug now considered
superseded by the alt Change Proposals? Should I drop this item from
this weekly report?
