Hi all,

In preparation for the call, I've put together some links on the "content generation" term:

Proposal: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2011OctDec/0049.html

Tentative text in the implementing doc:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2012/ED-IMPLEMENTING-ATAG20-20120113/#def-Content-Generation
content generation (content authoring, content editing):
The act of specifying the actual web content that will be rendered, played or executed by the end user's user agent. While the precise details of how content is created in any given system may vary widely, responsibility for the generation of content can be any combination of the following ():
- author generated content: Web content for which authors are fully responsible. The author may only be responsible down to a particular level (e.g., when asked to type a text label, the author is responsible for the text, but not for how the label is marked up; when typing markup in a source editing-view, the author is not responsible for the fact that UNICODE is used to encode the text ).
- automatically generated content: Web content for which developer-programmed functionality is fully responsible (e.g., what markup to output when an author requests to start a new document, automatically correcting markup errors).
- third-party content generation: Web content for which a third-party author is responsible (e.g., community shared templates).

GREATEST EFFECTS:
B.1.1.1 Content Auto-Generation After Authoring Sessions (WCAG)
http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2012/ED-IMPLEMENTING-ATAG20-20120113/#sc_b111

B.1.1.2 Content Auto-Generation During Authoring Sessions (WCAG)
http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2012/ED-IMPLEMENTING-ATAG20-20120113/#sc_b112

B.1.2.1 Restructuring and Recoding Transformations (WCAG)
http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2012/ED-IMPLEMENTING-ATAG20-20120113/#sc_b121

NEW CHANGES RESULTING:
1. Part B Conformance Applicability Note 3: Applicability after the end of an authoring session: 
Authoring tools are responsible for the accessibility of web content that they automatically generate after the end of an author's authoring session (see Success Criterion B.1.1.1). For example, if the developer changes the site-wide templates of a content management system, these would be required to meet the accessibility requirements for automatically-generated content. Authoring tools are not responsible for changes to the accessibility of content that the author causes, whether it is author-generated or automatically-generated by THIRD-PARTY systemS that the author has specified (e.g., a third-party feed).
