EOWG:

Calling logistics and an agenda for our 9 September 2005 teleconference follow.

   	        http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html
Bridge:   +1.617.761.6200, code: EOWG# (3694#)

BACKGROUND:

In previous EOWG meetings we decided to make some interim changes to the Evaluation Resource Suite, including breaking up into separate pages:
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/eval/
EOWG decided to address only open change log items and serious concerns with the content of the existing pages, and to hold off on any significant editing and minor issues. We expect to re-write much of the evaluation documents in 2006 with changes based on WCAG 2.0.

Rather than waiting until all of the evaluation documents are complete, we could put documents on the new site at different stages. A proposal for addressing the evaluation documents is:
* Evaluating Accessibility Overview - update on new site with update of the next 3 documents below
* Preliminary Reviews - put on new site as soon as feasible (in September), edit later in Fall 2005 or 2006
* Conformance Evaluations - put on new site as soon as feasible (in September), edit later in Fall 2005 or 2006
* Special Considerations - put on new site as soon as feasible (in September), edit later in Fall 2005 or 2006
* [User Evaluation] (new content) - complete & put on new site in Fall 2005
* Selecting Tools (new content) - put on new site as soon as feasible (might have minor edits after the sortable tools list is done)
* Existing Tools (already on new site) - leave version as is on new site for now,  complete sortable version & put on new site in Fall 2005
* Review Teams (already on new site) - edit in Fall 2005
* Reporting Template (already on new site) - edit in Fall 2005
(Fall 2005 = September, October, and a little of November )

Therefore, we are asking the full EOWG to review the documents below at this teleconference and see if they can be posted to the new site in the next week or so. Additional work on these or other evaluation documents may be done in an Evaluation Task Force later this year &/or next year.

-------

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

2. Reorganization of the Evaluation Resource Suite

See BACKGROUND above. Reminder that the EOWG decided address only open change log items and serious concerns with the content of the existing pages, and to hold off on any significant editing and minor issues.

Review questions:
2.a. Do these pages sufficiently stand alone?
- Evaluating Web Accessibility http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/Overview.html
- Preliminary Review... http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/preliminary.html
- Conformance Evaluation... http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/conformance.html
- Special Considerations... http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/considerations.html
2.b. In one discussion, we suggested adding to the overview page a small business case like paragraph about the benefits of evaluating for accessibility. Is it OK to put that on the list for the next revision (later in 2005 or in 2006), rather than adding it now?
2.c. Are there any serious concerns with the content that we need to address now? (Keep in mind that we plan to do a major rewrite of the documents in 2006.)
2.d. Are these pages ready to be put on the new site?

3. Selecting Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools
* latest draft: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/selectingtools.html
* changelog: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/selectingtools-changelog.html

This is a new document (that is, the content has not yet been posted to main site). See the requirements at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/selectingtools-changelog.html#about

Review questions:
3.a. Does this page fit cleanly with the other pages in the resource suite?
3.b. Are there any issues with the content that we need to address for this first version?
3.c. Is this page ready to be put on the new site?

4. (if time) Priorities for Translating WAI Documents
* http://www.w3.org/WAI/translation.html#priorities

For discussion:
Where do the newly-completed items fit in the lists?
- Introduction to Web Accessibility (temporarily at the top of the "Top priority:" list)
- Essential Components of Web Accessibility  (temporarily near the top of the "Top priority:" list)
- Developing a Web Accessibility Business Case for Your Organization (temporarily near the bottom of the "Introductory and short materials:" list)

Note: We are not opening up the rest of the WAI Translations document for edits at this time. Also note that we have on our list to complete plans for fitting translations into the new site design; however, we won't be getting to that for another month or more.

Regards,
~ Shawn & Judy

IRC reminders and tips:
* IRC is supplemental to the call. Some participants do not have IRC. All substantive comments should be said verbally in the call (not just in IRC).
* to type a side comment that will _not_ get recorded in the minutes, type /me comment - e.g.:
/me hopes Andrew had a good biking trip
- will come out:     *shawn hopes Andrew had a good biking trip
