Hello Everyone,

Since last week's report no bugs have been fixed or resolved. No NEW
a11y bugs were reported.

A draft survey for the CAPTCHA bug was presented to Mike Smith seven
weeks ago. Details are in section section one. Mike, What is the
status on this?

The Task Force still has not agreed on criteria or procedure for
applying the "a11yTF" keyword to new bugs. Details are in section two
below. Janina and Mike, should task force members simply use their own
judgment and individually tag bugs "a11yTF" as they see fit or will
criteria and a procedure be defined?

1. 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 five weeks ago.

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superseded by the alt Change Proposals?


2. ESTABLISHING "A11yTF" KEYWORD CRITERIA:

The Task Force still has not agreed on criteria for applying the
"a11yTF" keyword to NEW bugs. I have previously recommended that we
develop criteria, because on March 18, Mike Smith said 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.
http://www.w3.org/2010/03/18-html-a11y-minutes.html#item02

Mike, what is the status with this? Has it been decided not to have
the group document and to agree criteria in advance of tagging bugs
"a11yTF"?

Should task force members use their own judgment and tag bugs "a11yTF"
as they see fit? That would seem to be a simpler procedure.

I had started a Wiki page to brainstorm ideas for criteria but maybe
that is irrelevant now?
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 thirty 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_Keyword_Decision

We currently have five 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_Keyword_Decision

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