Dear RDWG,

The pre-publication draft of "Research Report on Web Accessibility 
Metrics" is now ready. *Please read the following carefully*:

Some changes were made since the approved Editor Draft of June 2012. 
These changes include:
  - Correcting spelling, grammar, and typographical errors;
  - Updating citations as discussed during teleconferences;
  - Edits to the Abstract and addition of Introduction text.

Particularly the changes to the Abstract and Introduction need your 
attention. Unlike the rest of the symposium material, the document did 
not make it sufficiently clear that conformance to WCAG 2.0 itself can 
be evaluated which might unfortunately give readers the misapprehension 
that WCAG 2.0 cannot be evaluated, and/or is inappropriate to use within 
policy contexts, or that WAI is doing no work on related aspects of 
evaluation. This would be detrimental to our work on accessibility.

The final draft, ready for publication, is available at:

Also find a diff-marked version highlighting the changes:

*ACTION:* Please indicate any objections to these changes before our 
upcoming teleconference meeting on 15 August 2012.

We're just a small step away from our first publication! ;)
