  I also think it would be good to have a short, strong, clear introduction for the main page (which we will also use for the announcements). There is some text in the beginning of http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/wiki/Mobile_Accessibility_Call that I suggest be refined to be cleaner and included in the main page.

>  - I think Jeanne has raised this before but the template sections listed in section "Contributing" does not seem to match the call text, especially where it says "this symposium aims to bring researchers and practitioners together to scope the extent and magnitude of existing mobile accessibility [...] We specifically seek reports and guides". Having "the problem they tried to solve" after that just seems like a mismatch to me.

In particular, please continue the sentence lengths, I already got lost in the first. Also, it seems that there are several points being made at the same time and they may need to be separated out and more clearly explained each.
