DISCUSSION

Test Framework - we began looking at a very preliminary draft of a test
framework [1] that Chris put together and also took at a look at the
Euroaccessibility test file work [2]. There was a very detailed discussion
about how specific the test files should be to be good tests of WCAG, with
some feeling they needed to be general enough not to be overly prescriptive
and context-insensitive, and others that issues left unspecified will be
subject to excessive variety of interpretation or omission. Action items
from this discussion were to have a few people analyze the entire chain from
a sample guideline, through success criteria, techniques, and test files and
see what issues and proposals come out of this, which could be generalized
to the entire set of guidelines.

Face-to-Face - some discussion of issues we would like to cover at the
Face-to-Face meeting in Cannes, France on 4 - 5 March 2004. Testing approach
and framework, work on RDF and SVG techniques, and reviews of HTML, CSS, and
Gateway techniques are primary agenda items. We would also like to take
coordination time with members of the QA working group and the SVG working
group. These are the current agenda proposals; a final agenda will be
available later.
