Colleagues:

We have been requested to confirm the consensus on longdesc reached at
the Text Subteam teleconference this past Monday, 17 May.

http://www.w3.org/2011/05/16-text-minutes.html

We are further requested to confirm the Task Force consensus according
to the published Consensus Procedures document at:

http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/consensus-procedures.html

Therefore, we will test for consensus on both resolutions approved by
the Text Subteam during our regular Task Force teleconference this
coming Thursday, 19 May.

If the consensus reached at the Text Subteam is confirmed during the
Thursday meeting, we will further open a WBS survey for three working
days beginning Thursday as provided for in the Consensus Procedures
document.

We will vote on each resolution separately, just as was done in the Text
Subteam, so that it is possible to approve either, neither, or both. The
two resolutions are:

RESOLUTION:
	The Task Force supports the Issue 30 Change Proposal at:
	http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/InstateLongdesc

RESOLUTION:
	The Task Force supports a Formal Objection escalation should it 
appear that HTML last call is to be published without the longdesc as 
in our supported proposal

Regards,
