Hi All,
Sorry if I appear awkward but following our recent conference I am even more worried about publishing this draft than I was before the conference. 

I believe that we have a good document as far as it goes (down to Step 3 of section 3) However after that there is nothing. No indication of what sort of guidance we will provide, how we expect evaluators to use and apply WCAG nor, crucially, on how we think we might report the evaluation findings. These areas are of major importance and therefore deserve at least some indication of where we are going, or at least thinking of going. Even amongst ourselves we are asking questions about things like conformance, how much more would the public be asking if all they have available is the current document?

I am not suggesting that we provide the same level of detail yet in steps 4 and 5 etc. as we have in the earlier parts. But we should be able to outline our approach in a couple of weeks so that the public get a more complete draft and we are clearer about the overall process we are developing.

So my request is to hold off publication for a couple more weeks so that we can put some more flesh on the document.

Kind Regards
