From: Janina Sajka <janina@rednote.net>
Date: Wed, 30 Jul 2014 17:00:54 -0400
To: WAI Protocols & Formats <public-pfwg@w3.org>
Cc: public-html-admin@w3.org, HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20140730210054.GL4248@concerto.rednote.net>
Colleagues:

PFWG has received no objections, and multiple messages of support to the
CfC below, all available in the thread beginning at:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-pfwg/2014Jul/0053.html

This CfC is, therefore, approved as a decision of the PFWG.

Regards,

Janina
