Hello Everyone,

Since last week's report we have had one NEW bug. We have had no
NEEDSINFO, WONTFIX, WORKSFORME, FIXED, or LATER bug resolutions.

It is anticipated that the survey for the CAPTCHA bug will happen
soon, as a draft was presented to Mike Smith five weeks ago.

We still need to agree on criteria for applying the "a11yTF" keyword.
I strongly recommend that this is be completed soon, as it is a
blocker for task force pursuit of work items key to our mission
(text-alternatives, ARIA, canvas).

The details are as follows.

1. NEW BUG:

Bug 9623: "<details> and <summary> are missing from the strong aria
semantics" table" reported by contributor@whatwg.org.
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9623

My View: I suggest that we expedite defining "a11ytf" keyword criteria
and procedures so we know if the task force can officially work on
this item. Currently not having the "a11ytf" keyword designation
blocks the task force from officially working on bugs key to the task
force mission. After criteria is agreed to, I recommend that the
a11ytf keyword be applied, if this bug meets the criteria. The March
18, 2010 teleconference minutes indicated that a non trivial cost
exists to tagging bugs "a11ytf" and that the task force needs to agree
on criteria for our decisions to take on bugs. A Wiki page brainstorms
ideas for criteria and procedures for the 'a11yTF' keyword".

2. CAPTCHA BUG:

Hopefully the survey for the CAPTCHA bug will happen soon. A draft was
delivered to Mike on March 21. The target time frame to go live was
over four weeks ago.

Mike, do you need any more help with this? Is there anything else I
can do to help move this forward?


3. ESTABLISHING "A11yTF" KEYWORD CRITERIA:

We still need to agree on criteria for applying the "a11yTF" keyword.
It would be good to settle this soon as this is a blocker for the task
force pursuit of items key to our mission (i.e. Text Alternatives,
ARIA).

The March 18, 2010 teleconference minutes indicated that a non trivial
cost exists to tagging bugs "a11ytf" and that the task force needs to
agree on criteria for our decisions to take on bugs. A Wiki page
brainstorms ideas begun in the email "Criteria for 'a11yTF' keyword
application".
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs/KeywordCriteria
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Mar/0438.html

We currently have twenty nine HTML Spec bugs awaiting task force
decision. Ian Hickson is editor of that document.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs#HTML5_Spec_Bugs_Awaiting_A11yTF_Decision

We currently have four Bugs on Document "HTML5: Techniques for
providing useful text alternatives Bugs" awaiting task force decision.
Steve Faulkner is editor of that document.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs#Text_Alternatives_Techniques_Bugs_Awaiting_A11yTF_Decision

We currently have four bugs that I am aware of that have Keyword
"a11ytf" applied with no approval from the task force:

"A11yTF" keyword applied to them in January 2009 are at:
