Hello Everyone,

Since the last report we have had:

3 WONTFIX bugs. Details are in section 1.
1 FIXED bugs. Details are in section 2.
1 REOPENED bug. Details are in section 3.
3 NEW a11y bugs. Details are in section 4.

Details are as follows.

1. WONTFIX BUGS:

1.1 Bug 12545: "<video> MEDIA CONTROLLER requires loop attribute for
grouped multitrack" reported by John Foliot.
Ian's Rationale: "Not supporting this was intentional: completeness is
not a use case, and only makes sense when it would be simpler than the
alternative, which is not the case here."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12545

1.2 Bug 12546: "<video> MEDIA CONTROLLER requires autoplay attribute
for grouped multitrack" reported by John Foliot.
Ian's Rationale: "see comment 2"
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12546

1.3 Bug 12547: "<video> MEDIA CONTROLLER requires readyState for
grouped multitrack" reported by John Foliot.
Ian's Rationale: "see comment 2"
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12547


2. FIXED BUGS:

2.1 Bug 12548: "<video> MEDIA CONTROLLER requires onended event"
reported by John Foliot.
Ian's rationale: "Concurred with reporter's comments."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12548
Check-in comment: "Provide an .onended event handler for
MediaController to expose the event more easily."

3. REOPENED BUGS:

3.1 Bug 12405: "<video> There's a problem with overlaying a
sign-language video and using native controls, because the overlaid
video overlaps the native controls" reported by contributor@whatwg.org
Ian's Rationale for not fixing: "This isn't a problem specific to sign
language tracks - it applies to everything that might be overlaid on
the video, if the UA renders the controls at the z-index of the video
element. So the UA shouldn't do that. :-) "
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12405
Reopened by Simon Pieters. Simon's comment: "The rendering section
doesn't say to use a different z-index for the native controls."

4. NEW BUGS:

4.1 Bug 12971: "A lot of times, perhaps the majority of the time,
authors use <em> or <strong> to make text italic or bold, when in fact
the intention has nothing to do with emphasizing or strongly
emphasizing the text. The result is terrible in aural browsers..."
reported by contributor@whatwg.org

Aryeh Gregor (Simetrical+w3cbug@gmail.com) marked this bug WORKSFORME.
