Couple of comments:
1. Timeline View Summary shows publication of EARL 1.0 as W3C rec in 2Q2010
but table shows it as 1Q2010; I assume we want 2Q?
2. Dependencies
- I don't think we have a dependency on PF for WAI ARIA. After all, EARL is
for reporting test results and if, for some reason, the PF's WAI ARIA spec
is not complete or gets held up, this doesn't effect our ability to
describe test results. It might effect the extent to which the evaluation
tools we deliver or make available can evaluate compliance with WCAG2.0 but
an effect on the *extent* of testing does not, I believe, effect our
success criteria.
- Not sure if we have dependency on Semantic Web Interest Group but
certainly want to follow their best practices
- I would add both WCAG and AUWG to dependency list due to availability of
test suites

Other than that, I think it looks much better.

Dear Group,

Ref: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/charter4>

Please find an updated draft charter for ERT WG, which contains most
changes that we had discussed. It still contains some questions, each
marked with "@@@" within the document. Please let me know if you have
any questions or comments as soon as you can.

Regards,
   Shadi
