Comment #16 (was Re: EvalTF Agenda Telco)

Hi Richard, hi Peter,

[Peter, this is relevant to you, as you have an objection logged in 

During the teleconference call we discussed comment #19 that requested 
"A special score should be available when only automatic measurements 
have been possible":
  - <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/conformance/comments#c16>

We interpreted this to mean an additional score for automated testing 
only, beyond the scoring metric we propose in section 3.5.3 (this is now 
defined in the latest Editor Draft):
  - <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/conformance/ED-methodology-20120730#step5c>

The current resolution we took is "WCAG-EM is only for full evaluation, 
not for tool measurement only. This is not covered in the current 
requirements and therefore not in the document".

Unless there are continued objections or new arguments we should not 
re-open this issue for discussion.

Peter, since you have an objection logged, please confirm whether you 
accept or object to the group resolution.

> <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/conformance/comments#c19>
> Comment #12: Need to agree on update in editor draft. There is a clarification of the concept of use-case in the updated section 3.4.1 Step 4.a (Check for the Broadest Variety of Use Cases). Does this clarify use case sufficiently for the moment or should we open an issue on use cases and come back tot that in a later draft.
> <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/conformance/comments#c12>
> Comment #16: Need to resolve an objection. Is this objection solved by the updated section 3.5.3 Step 5.c (Provide a Performance Score (optional)? The section adds different scores. This methodology is not limited to automated evaluation or related sub-scores.
> <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/conformance/comments#c16>
> Comment #48: Need to resolve an objection. The rationale is as indicated in the objection very much stressing the need to make it non-optional. We can decide to make no change and keep it optional (1) because we want to stay on the SC level as in WCAG2.0 and/or (2) open an issue to discuss making Step 1.e non-optional. Please note the open ended nature of the techniques.

> Comment #A1: Need to agree on the proposed resolution. The tekst says “..minimum set of web browsers and assistive technology to evaluate for shall be defined”. This is important because it is an important part of defining "accessibility support" Proposed resolution is therefore to make no change.
