Hello Everyone,

Since the last report we have had:

1 WONTFIX bug. Details are in section 1.
1 REOPENED bug. Details are in section 2.
5 CLOSED bugs. Details are in section 3.
1 ESCALATED bug. Details are in section 4.

Five accessibility change proposals are due this month. Key deadlines
are January 12, 17, 19, and 26. Details are in section 5.

Fifty Pre-Last Call 1 accessibility task force (a11ytf) bugs exist
which have not been escalated to the HTML Tracker or marked "verified"
or marked "closed" as of January 8, 2011.

A detailed snapshot of these fifty-one bugs is at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs/SnapshotPLC1_20110108

Please check the snapshot details for bugs that you may have reported
and for bugs that may have been have been assigned to you. Please
close bugs that are satisfactorily resolved. Those not satisfactorily
resolved can be escalated to an issue. This will enable the full HTML
Working Group the ability to address the problem and the HTML Chairs
the ability to make a decision.

January 22, 2011 is the deadline for escalating Pre-Last Call 1 bugs
to a HTML WG Issue if the reporter, or the task force, or any
individual working group member for that matter, is not satisfied with
the editor's resolution. For details on escalating a Bug to an Issue
please refer to the instructions at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs/Escalating_a_Bug_to_an_Issue

Consequences of missing the January 22 deadline is that any further
escalations will be treated as Last Call comments.

A backlog of 25 a11y bugs on the HTML5 Spec await task force decision
of whether to apply the a11ytf keyword or not. The majority these 25
are Pre-Last Call Bugs. Details are in section 6.

Details are as follows.


1. WONTFIX BUG:

1.1 Pre-Last Call Bug 8716: "Replace img Guidance for Conformance
Checkers with Suggested Text for Short Text Alternatives" reported by
Laura Carlson.
This bug had already been escalated for HTML Issue 31 and the Change
Proposal has been written. I added the TrackerIssue keyword per
Comment 6 and changed the status to WONTFIX as the editor has written
his own No-Change Change-Proposal for Issue 31.
