Mike Smith requests to add the role attribute to the list of global 
attributes, Steve Faulkner confirms it. So the HTML accessibility bug 
triage sub-team thinks this issue should be task force priority, adding 
the a11yTF keyword.


TOPIC: New bugs: #12141
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12141

The HTML accessibility bug triage sub-team thinks this issue should be 
task force priority because it's related to the other media work, adding 
the a11yTF keyword.


TOPIC: Accessibility of Bugzilla
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10525

MK: The bug is on the list of bugs owned by the chairs awaiting a a11yTF 
decision. Since the bug-triage sub-team members have experience in 
accessibility assessments I'd propose to check against WCAG and 
screenreader compatibility.

The bug-triage sub-team doesn't think this should be task force priority 
because it's an external tool, but we encourage individuals to look into 
the accessibility of the tool and make recommendations or improvements.

Most bug-triage team members don't have the resources to assess Bugzilla 
themselves, but we do recommend another check.

MK: By the way, Bugzilla version 4 was released a couple of days ago, so 
a comparison between the currently installed version (3.6.2) and the 
latest version would make sense.
