DISCUSSION

Discussion of project plan - we reviewed a draft plan put together by Wendy
and Michael. Much of our focus was on how to get Techniques deliverables
accomplished - that is, techniques documents for a number of technologies,
within the same time frame that WCAG 2.0 is ready for implementation
testing. We identified two roles that some needs to take for each document:
a coordinator who makes sure work proceeds apace, collects submissions,
etc., and an editor who builds and maintains the actaul XML source of a
techniques document. 

Right now the need is to coordinate the collection of techniques. We decided
to implement a system by which people, internally to the WCAG WG and
externally, can submit techniques for consideration over the Web.
Submissions will initially be archived to a read-only mailing list. We need
to collect a lot of proposals in the next couple months, then begin
collating them in January.

We talked briefly about HTML techniques, but a draft was not posted before
the meeting. We will discuss the new draft at the next week an prepare it
for posting to TR as an updated working draft as soon as possible after.
