Hi Steve

I would like to volunteer to join the editors team for Using ARIA in HTML. As an 11 year member of WCAG and involved in creating ARIA techniques for WCAG I think it would help ensure unity of the documents and also add some diversity to the editors team...

Hi all, 

I would appreciate the taskforces consideration of the following:

I sent an email [1] to the public-html-admin mailing list asking the HTML 
working chairs permission to let fellow HTML working group and accessibility task force members Gez Lemon and Hans Hillen join me as editors of Using ARIA in HTML [2].
I recieved feedback from Sam Ruby[3] indicating that the taskforce needs to address this request.

reasons for request:
To bring Gez and Hans' known practical knowledge and expertise in ARIA and HTML to further the development of the document
To reduce my overall workload as I have recently taken on editing duties of HTML as part of the HTML editing team.

Note: Gez, Hans and I are all employed by TPG. At the current time as sole editor, 100% of the editing duties for Using ARIA in HTML 
are being conducted by a person employed by TPG, if Gez and Hans are approved as additional editors that percentage will be unchanged.
If anybody has any objections to Using ARIA in HTML being edited by TPG employees  please speak up.
