+++Forwarded Text Subteam Issues ---

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

2011-05-19, 15:00Z (for 60 minutes)
Dial the Zakim bridge using either SIP or the PSTN.
PSTN: +1.617.761.6200 (This is a U.S. number).
SIP: zakim@voip.w3.org
You should be prompted for a pass code,
This is
2119#
(a11y#)

Alternatively, bypass the Zakim prompts and SIP directly into our teleconference.
SIP: 002119@voip.w3.org

IRC: server: irc.w3.org, port: 6665, channel: #html-a11y.

During the conference you can manage your participation with Zakim commands as follows:
   61# to mute yourself
   60# to unMute yourself
   41# to raise your hand (enter speaking queue)
   40# to lower your hand (exit speaking queue)

The system acknowledges these commands with a rapid, three-tone confirmation.  Mobile phone users especially should use the mute function if they don't have a mute function in their phone.  But the hand-raising function is a good idea for anyone not using IRC.

* IRC access

     There will also be an IRC channel available. The server is irc.w3.org,
     the port number is 6665 (note this is not the normal default) and the channel is #html-a11y.

* Gregory Rosmaita's scribing and participation tips http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/wiki/Teleconference_cheat_sheet

- for RRSAgent, that captures and posts the log with special attention to action items:

- for Zakim, the IRC interface to the bridge manager, that will maintain speaker and agenda queues:
