    <Jan> Scribe: jeanne



1. New proposal "At Least as Prominent"



    <Jan> AL: Suggests combining note 2 and 3

    <Jan> JR: agree

    <Jan> Resolution: All accept At least as prominent definition (with
    notes 2 and 3 combined)


    no other objections. Agreement to combine 2 and 3, because 2 is the
    examples, and 3 is the same topic but an anti-example.

VOTE on whether to publish ATAG 2.0 as a (non-last call) public working

    Alex: If we are supposed to review the comments, is there a reason
    to publish now before we have finished the comments.

    Jan: Our heartbeat publishing requirement is overdue. We need to
    publish, but since it isn't a Last Call, we don't have to have
    finished responding to all the July Last Call comments

    Alex: Are we going to publish another draft?

    <Greg> Greg +1

    Jan: Yes, it will either be a working draft or a Last Call Working

    All vote in favor

3. Any feedback on group action to review the proposed comment
responses for comment responses for: Level A Success Criteria for Part
A (from comment: GG4 to OC13)



    Alex: I reviewed the Microsoft comments and they are good.

    Jan: The Microsoft comments are comprehensive, so that is an
    excellent piece of work.

    TimB: I thought they looked good

    Jeanne: I thought they were good.

    Jutta: Are people ready to send these responses to the commenters?

    [no objections}

    <Jan> judy?

    <judy> yes, shall i join?

    <Jan> yes pls

    Jan: Next assignment will be Part B.

Judy Brewer visit to introduce the Gallery project

    Judy: This will be a "Grab and Go Gallery for Accessible Authoring".
    People have been working on since last July. It is not a sole W3C
    ... Last July, there were events associated with the 20th
    anniversary of the US Americans With Disability Act. Two ideas were
    proposed, one being the Gallery, the other was a geolocation

    <judy> challenge.gov



    Judy: The first stage is to have a presence on Challenge.gov, where
    the US is presenting crowdsourcing projects for science and
    technology. This will be used to collect submissions to the Grab and
    Go Gallery.


      [16] http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/challenge-gallery/wiki/Sources_Samples

    Judy: we want to gather all sorts of components that will help
    people with accessible authoring. Some will be templates, and others
    will be widgets - components used for dynamic action
    ... the Sources and Samples are examples of accessible widgets. Some
    are from the Fluid Project that Jan and Jutta are associated with,
    others come from the AEGIS project, others come from the WAI-ARIA
    code library. We are hoping to get far more submissions than these.
    ... we will review the submissions for accessibility, and successful
    submissions will be posted in the gallery.
    ... I want this working group to be aware in case there are
    questions, and particularly so that members of this group can spread
    the word and encourage others to submit their work.

    Tim: What is the process?

    Judy: The Grab and Go Gallery link has a "how to submit". This is
    our draft materials, not the final challenge site.
    ... You may want to wait until we make it official, because we are
    still editing license requirements, etc.

    Jeanne: the submissions can be international.

    Judy: Many of the examples we are starting with are international.
    It will probably be hosted by the CIO Council of the US, and there
    may be a mirror at the W3C.

    Jutta: It is great that we got the attention of the US White House
    about it.

    Judy: Depak Chopra is very interested. There is also an interest in
    the cost savings of having compnents available for sharing. There
    are also possibilities for premium-level components.

    <judy> [17]http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/challenge-gallery/wiki/Testing

      [17] http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/challenge-gallery/wiki/Testing

    Judy: we were trying to make it as efficient as possible. For
    example, we want to have volunteers evaluating for accessibility,
    but we wanted to share the testing process so that authors
    submitting would know how we testing.
    ... I am hoping that others in this group may be interested in
    volunteering to help.

    Jan: I sent some text clarifying when people need to test against



    Jan: Alastair may be interested, as he works for a CMS who has
    templates. I will ping him on.

    Judy: I expect that more people are submitting widgets, and we are
    interested in templates, too.
    ... You can see the wish list, one of which is accessible CAPTCHA.
    It needs to be WCAG AA conformant.
    ... there are a number of people working on accessible CAPTCHA which
    is advancing the field.
    ... we are also in testing trying to bring people back to ATAG

    Jutta: Usually this group has no reticence to critique things, so I
    think the lack of comments represents agreement.

    Judy: If people have quesions or comments please email me.

    <Jan> ASSIGNMENT FOR NEXT WEEK (April 18):

    <Jan> - Check comment responses for:

    <Jan> Level A Success Criteria for Part B (from comment: GG5 to
