EOWG,

Here is a specific question that I would like to discuss on the list &/or when it fits in the agenda this week or next:

* That type and amount of information should go in WCAG 2.0 versus the support documents. Specifically for now: What should go in the "Conformance to WCAG 2.0" document, and what should go in the "About Baselines for WCAG 2.0" document? Should some of what is in one now by moved to the other?

Keep in mind:
- Conformance <http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/conformance.html> is the official W3C Recommendation, or standard. It is "the" document that any formal references to WCAG 2.0 will use. Once it is completed, it cannot be edited (without going through the W3C Recommendation Track Process).
- About Baselines <http://www.w3.org/wai/wcag20/baseline/> is a WAI Resource. It is pointed to from WCAG 2.0 and other supporting documents. It can be edited at any time, with the approval of the WCAG Working Group.

I'm interested in your perspective.

Regards,
~ Shawn
