I'm sure Avneesh just sent this FYI but I thought I should point out that
only AC reps can actually vote so you don't try and get frustrated if
you're not an AC rep.

> The primary purpose of the Proposed Recommendation is to collect

> invited to send formal review comments to the W3C Team until 22 May
> 2018. Comments should be made using the Call for Review WBS form. To
> comment, aside from Advisory Committee comments, file an issue in the
> W3C WCAG 2.1 GitHub repository. The Working Group requests that public
> comments be filed as new issues, one issue per discrete comment. It is
> free to create a GitHub account to file issues. If filing issues in
> GitHub is not feasible, send email to public-agwg-comments@w3.org
> (comment archive). Comments are requested by 22 May 2018. In-progress
