Hi All,

I've been working on a techniques submission form [1] recently that provides
a mechanism for individuals interested in submitting WCAG 2.0 techniques to
the working group for possible inclusion in a draft. 

The form allows submitters to include all of the relevant bits of
information about a technique (ex. technology, guideline, descriptive prose,
code examples, etc.) and automatically converts the submission into the XML
format we're using (xmlspec-tech DTD [2]) to edit techniques. The results of
the submission are then automatically archived in the
public-wcag2-techs@w3.org Mail Archives [3], which is a list that has been
configured to accept submissions only from the techniques submission form.

Hopefully, this tool will streamline the process of adding new techniques to
our drafts and help the techniques task force invite greater participation
and submission from the web development community.

Please feel free to try it out and let me know if you have any questions,
comments or other feedback about it. Our hope is that as we evolve the
techniques drafts, we will be able to put out a series of "calls for
techniques" in the same way we currently release "calls for review" when new
public working drafts of the guidelines become available.

-Ben
