Sam, Maciej & Paul,

 

The HTML A11y TF has been processing bugs that were filed against the 5.0
spec, and which were subsequently marked resolved needsInfo/wontFix. We’ve
come across a handful that we believe are still relevant, and would welcome
your help in agreeing the best way to take things forward.

 

We’re talking about perhaps a dozen bugs. We still have more to process, but
based on our experiences to date we don’t anticipate that this number will
rise too dramatically.

 

We don’t want to hold up the current CR, and don’t believe that any of the
bugs we’ve identified so far warrant being re-opened against 5.0 in any
case. We would like to re-open them against 5.1, but also realise that the
onus is on the TF to provide the additional information requested, or to
provide reasonable grounds for re-opening those marked wontFix. 

 

There was some discussion about the best approach to take on the TF call
today:

http://www.w3.org/2014/02/27-html-a11y-minutes.html

 

One proposal is for the TF to move the bugs in question to the HTML A11y TF
component in bugzilla. This would clear them from each of the legacy
components they’re currently logged against (Pre-LC1, LC1 etc.), but without
moving them into the 5.1 component before it would be appropriate to do so.

 

We don’t want to push these bugs back to the editors until we can provide
some tangible information for them to consider. Once the information has
been gathered though, we’d be in a position to move the bug over to 5.1 and
continue the discussion during the expected lifecycle of the spec.

 

 

Thanks for your input on this.

 

Léonie.
