Notes from Con Call July 19, 2004

Recorded by Greg Pisocky:


Matt May: MM
Jan Richards: JR
Roberto Scano: RS
Greg Pisocky: GP

Tim Boland
Karen Mardahl
Jutta Treviranus

Chair: Jan Richards JR

JR: Went over the agenda. Face to face update, updated docuements with
changes from the meetings to get to working group draft shortly, progress
check, go over the workplan.


1. F2F update.

JR: Basically the F to F was a heavy slog through the guidelines 3 and 4. At
end of second day a call with WCAG was held and progress was made getting
WCAG to reference ATAG. Discussion of status with references to WCAG
document seems as if it should get done as a recommendations track document.
In the future this will make it easier to update conformance in the event
WCAG makes changes.

2. Updated documents available at:

You can browse the documents at will at the following locations. Use these
as you conduct your work items.


3. Technique workplan progress check. (Monday is the deadline for
VE="Very Easy" items)


Work items were classified into 3 categories. Very Easy due today, Easy due
in two weeks, and Hard due in 4 weeks.

eMail from Jutta indicates the VE item is on its way.  Moving on, the easy
requires changing the voice of all the items. Next examples for
Greg committed to organizing his group for tomorrow. Minor changes in
techniques document moved to ATAG by Jan. Success criteria 3 for 4.2 the
structure is in place. Illustrations for 4.3 are done. The content
management template example remains. General reformatting of techniques is
now done.

The so called hard items. Prompting and assisting for meta data will be
worked on next few days. Style sheets on the way. Prompting and assisting
for other types on the way. Prompting for up to date formats in progress.
Barry will continue working on the high level XML.

Some unclassified items remain. Configurability checkpoints and a QA review.

There are also test plan work items, trying to put together a template.

Matt has a project review to the W3C explaining testing challenges and what
is required to make it to recommendation.

RS: Would like to contribute to the CMS example.
