Some random thoughts:

- There is a technology dependency (JS) in the sc2.5.1_l1_002 test sample. In this case the related technique is specifically about client-side validation, so it's quite obvious we should need client-side technology, but do we need to explicitly say it in the metadata? (the baseline again) 

- Right now I still don't get the whole ruleset thing for the objectives of this TF. In the uploaded test cases the rule elements point to an xml document with a series of rulesets. I think we should think about restricting these pointers to direct WCAG2 references.

- I'm not sure about how minimal should the test samples be, I mean the sc2.5.1_l1_002 test sample is compound just of a label and an input, it's minimal and complete from the point of view of automatic validation, but it doesn't look complete at all from an user perspective.

Let's say between half an hour and three quarters, which I think is too much time, but we should take into consideration that it was a "first review" and it's expected that this time will decrease.

IMO trying to scrutinize the XML directly is quite a rough work. It may help if we provide a web interface to see the metadata. Obviously as much automatic verification as we can do will also be helpful.

Step 3 is a more light process but I think it could also be lightly facilitated if the links to relevant techniques and test procedures are directly provided (instead of having to scrutinize inside the XML again)

Regards,
 CI.
