Hello Everyone,

As of today, January 15, 2011 fifty Pre-Last Call accessibility task
force (a11ytf) bugs exist which have not been escalated to the HTML
Tracker or marked "verified" or marked "closed".

A detailed snapshot of these 50 bugs is at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs/SnapshotPLC1_20110115

Please check the snapshot 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, one week from today, is the deadline for escalating
Pre-Last Call 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.
