All,

 

I concur with Michael – this is a text alternatives related bug, and one that Janina and Judy have been working on. It does appear to be linked to Bug 8171, for which Michael has requested clarification on process–wise from the Chairs: to whit, is there sufficient evidence to re-open Issue 31 or should a new Issue be put forward.

 

Should it be the later (new Issue) then I wish to formally request a 18 hour extension of the deadline from 23:59 Boston on Jan 13. To 17:59 Boston on Jan. 14th, or 18 hours after a response from the Chairs, which ever comes last to allow us to properly submit a Tracker Issue. Michael, I can assist here if required – please advise.

 

JF

I'll have to leave it to someone (John?) to answer the meaning of the TrackerRequest keyword on this bug. The activity of the Bug Triage team was to make a TrackerRequest on 8171 and link this bug to that, according to the process we discussed yesterday to associate multiple bugs with a few issue escalations. The existing TrackerRequest on this bug was not part of our triaging. I personally think the dependency of this bug on 8171 is sufficient to capture the issue and this bug does not need escalating separately. But if others feel differently I'll let them sort out the tracker issue wording. Michael

Could someone please clarify how this TrackerRequest should be handled?  
 
In particular it would be useful if someone could answer Sam's questions in https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13651#c15 
 
If this is indeed related to the Issue being created for bug 8171, is this a separate issue or the same issue?
