Hi Sam,

The Call for Consensus deadline had passed without objection. Paul
stated in last week's telco minutes [1]
Paul: didn't see objections for Cfc on ISSUE-203
... Chairs will evaluate and resolve the issue, then transmit to editors

So I don't understand, why would ISSUE-203 have gone to survey?

> Ted has been asked, by the chairs, to help out on a number of issues

Again, may I ask why and for what purpose? Have the chairs asked him
to write counter proposals to the accessibility task force's
proposals? I am trying to understand all of this.


Best Regards,
