1. Outreach updates (brief)
- please send to EOWG mailing list in advance, note any trends or issues for EOWG discussion

2. WAI Site Redesign

2.a. Minor changes in information architecture
- see Site Map: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/sitemap.html
- CHANGE: removed top level "Guidelines and Resources", moved up to top level:
   * Guidelines and Techniques
   * Support Materials
- CHANGE: added About WAI > Mission and Organization (moved text from top level page for consistency)
- CHANGE: tweaked static navigation (at bottom of nav bar):
   * WAI Site Map
   * Help with WAI Site
   * Contacting WAI
   * WAI Translations
   * Search

2.b. Simplified navigation interaction design
- previous prototypes had [+] and [-] icons before the navigation items, for example:
   * http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/implement.html has the boxes without the + and -
- recommending simpler navigation interaction, a few sample pages:
   * http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/
   * http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/gettingstarted/Overview.html
   * http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/intro/accessibility.php
   * http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/resources.html
   * http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/implement.html
   * http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/groups.html

2.c. Some specifics
NOTE: We still plan to refine the visual design. However, we might not get significant visual design revisions before the next round of usability testing - thus the opportunity for brief comment on some specifics below (even though they may change later).
- some options for indicating "parent" node (that is, there are sub nodes underneath it):
   * no indication: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/implement.html
   * ellipsis (...) after: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/e-implement.html
   * >> after: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/a-implement.html
- some options for additional indication of current page/node:
   * arrow on right: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/p-implement.html
   * arrow before: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/h-implement.html
- matching menu items with annotated list items
   * just navigation words bold: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/implement.html
   * all bold: http://w3.org/2004/09/wai-nav/v7/h-implement.html
