additional update on longdesc steps and timeline

   judy: Thanks PLH for joining to discuss community concerns recently raised re longdesc reconsideration
   ... We've heard chairs are working through the various longdesc cp's but no firm date for moving forward
   ... anything further than can be said re expected steps and timelines?

   plh: Aplogizing for delay in dealing with this. It is an important issue.
   ... It is on a critical path, Maciej responded on list
   ... Chairs do have a tentative date, but they're still working toward an agreement re the existing 3 cps
   ... Hope is to move forward "extremely fast."
   ... Apologizing again for the delay, but noting this is a top priority item for us

   <Judy> js: Philippe I was wondering about Laura's question or assertion that Jonas and Ian might in the meantime be
   working on another approach? Do you have any thoughts about whether there might be work going on in the background?

   <Judy> plh: I don't know about that; that would be new information to me and possibly to the Chairs if so.

   <Judy> js: would be important to know

   judy: PLH, would be good to check with Chairs whether they know anything on this as well

   <Judy> jb: Janina if you have more info (any links?) on that could you please let us know; and Philippe can you check
   in with the Chairs on that?
