Thanks for doing this work.  I'm confused - first you say the GL mailing 
list has not been
successful, and then you propose using the GL mailing list for 
communication with the
WCAG WG (in the last * item) (or am I misunderstanding?).

The WCAG WG is currently working off of an issues database to process WD 
comments.  As a possible alternative for communication, is there a 
possibility to ask the powers that be to include a "testing" category in 
that database, to handle testing issues that arise from the TSDTF 
work?   That way, the structure that currently exists in the database could 
be used to the maximum extent possible, and since the WCAG WG is used to 
processing issues in this database, communication might be facilitated...

Just a thought..

Thanks again and best wishes
Tim Boland NIST
