Hello Everyone,

Since the last report we have had two new ally bugs. They are:

1.1 Bug 12306: "'When authors use the canvas element, they must also
provide content that, when presented to the user, conveys essentially
the same function or purpose as the bitmap canvas.' While everyone can
probably agree that alternative content is a good idea when feasible,
when considering what people are using the canvas for, which seems to
fit the examples provided in the first paragraph well, the wording
"they must" doesn't make any sense to me. How on earth do you expect
authors to provide alternative content for a game or a complex
visualization? I suggest either softening the first sentence up or
just whacking it entirely. Otherwise thanks for a nice and clear spec.
:) " reported by contributor@whatwg.

1.2 Bug 12325: "Conformance requirements for <table role=presentation>
(layout tables)" reported by Leif Halvard Silli.
