IMPORTANT: Changes to the HTML-A11Y Task Force

From: Janina Sajka <janina@rednote.net>
Date: Mon, 8 Oct 2012 22:14:39 -0400
To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20121009021438.GC4450@concerto.rednote.net>

Task Force discussion and approval is requested for the HTML-WG's
proposed addition to the TF's Scope of Work statement as explained at: 


  "The task force may also create specifications that extend
   deliverables of the HTML Working Group, in the area of
   accessibility. The Accessibility Task Force will have decision
   authority over the contents of such extension specifications. Any
   such specifications will be considered jointly produced
   by the HTML Working Group and PFWG, for purposes of W3C
   Publication. This means that, as with any w3c joint task force deliverable,
   both Working Groups must approve transitions such as First
   Public Working Draft or Last Call. It also means that documents
   will create Patent Policy obligations in both groups. Members
   of either Working Group who have technical comments or
   objections on Task Force publications are expected to raise
   them in the context of the Task Force."
The complete set of changes proposed for the HTML-WG in order that HTML
5.0 may be completed by end of year 2014can be found at:


If there are questions or concerns, please feel free to raise them in
response to this email. Please also expect discussion, and a possible
resolution on this amendment at this week's regular weekly teleconference on Thursday.
