48-Hour Consensus Call: InstateLongdesc CP Update

From: Janina Sajka <janina@rednote.net>
Date: Thu, 13 Sep 2012 13:10:24 -0400
To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20120913171024.GG8843@concerto.rednote.net>
Colleagues:

The HTML-A11Y Task Force has twice resolved support for the InstateLongdesc
Change Proposal on Issue-30 Longdesc reconsideration, most recently as
logged at:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2011May/0399.html
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/InstateLongdesc

As we expect reconsideration of the Issue-30 decision on longdesc will
be taken up by the HTML-WG soon, the Task Force Text Subteam has
provided a narrative wrapper for this CP which is intended to serve as
concise orientation at the top level of
the CP, leaving detailed evidence and argument to subpages.

The Task Force teleconference on 13 September reviewed this approach for
the second time and confirmed no objections to it:

http://www.w3.org/2012/09/13-html-a11y-minutes.html#item02

As was noted during the teleconference, the Instatelongdesc CP had this
kind of top level presentation until the evidence in the CP became so
extensive that it seemed prudent to reformat the CP using subpages.

The discussion page to review is at:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/Talk:ChangeProposals/InstateLongdesc

If you have objections, comments, or proposed edits, please respond by
replying to this message no later than 12:00 PM (Noon), Boston Time, on
Tuesday 18 September. This is 16:00 UTC.

All Task Force participants are also invited to attend the Task Force
Text Subteam teleconference at 1:00 PM Boston Time Tuesday, (17:00 UTC),
when all comments received will be considered and the orientation page
finalized.

The Text Subteam uses Zakim channel 2119#; and IRC channel #text. An
agenda will be published to the Task Force list before this
teleconference as usual.
