Hi, Paul:

I don't recall a conversation on HTML-A11Y. I do recall a conversation
in HCG.

However, this is certainly a worthy topic for HTML-A11Y, and I am happy
to add it to our Thursday agenda.

Meanwhile, any specifics that people can share via email would, I'm
sure, be much appreciated.

As I recall the HCG conversation ...

*	We needed to confirm whether W3C was using latest Bugzilla as
*	this question invariably comes up when enhancements are proposed
*	upstream.

*	We wanted to see how we might enhance W3C bugzilla a11y via any
*	configuration changes in the W3C deployment.

*	We might then want to propose changes upstream to default
*	Bugzilla.
