Proposals for longdesc bugs...

From: Charles McCathie Nevile <chaals@yandex-team.ru>
Date: Thu, 09 May 2013 20:49:23 +0200
To: "public-html-a11y@w3.org" <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Message-ID: <op.wwtyklsqy3oazb@chaals.local>

resolutions of the following bugs are outstanding:

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=21987 - provide a sister  
attribute to note the presence of longdesc, e.g. to enable discovery.

PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Reject. The use cases can trivially be met by looking  
for the presence of the longdesc attribute itself

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=21894 - define longdesc  
like cite instead of as a link

PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Reject. This seems to be buying into a pile of  
unnecessary complication, doesn't seem motivated by any use case, and  
apparently assumes decisions that are contrary to those taken by the TF.

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=21988 - update URL  
definition to a link that works

PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Fixed. This will be done in the editor's draft that  
gets out some time tonight.
