(And Léonie thought that would be useful).

I don't really mind either way, but i think the details are worth being clear about.

The accessibility TF has a weekly teleconference, and that is the one phone meeting where I expect to discuss the topic regularly, at least for now. It is open to any participant of the HTML WG, and occurs the hour before the HTML teleconference, thursdays at 5pm Madrid time / 11am W3C Universal Boston time / etc.

All members of the TF are members of HTMLWG, so are presumably subscribed to that list.

It is relatively straightforward to prefix discussions, if we are moderately disciplined, and that makes it feasible to filter.

More generally, I find email a good way to have discussions, and "bulletin board" systems like specifiction, github issues, etc, far less easy to work with. But I am only one person in the conversation and happy to be guided by what others prefer. (It would make sense to ask the same question of the HTML group and chairs, BTW. And I note that whioe IndieUI seems to have gone on hold, that work is obviously closely related - as is the work being done in webapps editing TF - I'll pose the question to those tw communities as well).
